Good Day Community Members:
Many of you have contacted me and inquired how you might be able to help the family affected by Saturday's terrible fire. Of course, this assistance effort will be on-going as our neighbors work to rebuild after this tragic fire. Please know that your generosity and your assistance is making a very real and positive impact.
Below are clothing sizes for all members of the family. As a result of the fire, the family lost practically everything. Should you wish to donate clothing, please remember that the adults in the family are presently in need as well. Any/all donations can be dropped off in the main offices at all three of our schools, the Superintendent's Office at AHHS and Village Hall in Elmsford (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.):

Thank you to all of you who have already been so generous and have donated to this Elmsford family. As a victim of a fire myself over 15 years ago, it is devastating and overwhelming when you have to start all over again and rebuild your life. Any assistance we can offer this family as a community will make starting over so much easier for them.
A page has been set up for them on the “Give Forward” website, which has helped so many through difficult times.
Dr. Joseph Ricca, Elmsford Superintendent of Schools
