Oceanside CA— The southern California community is still reeling from the devastating fires that tore through North County in recent months. Many MiraCostans, students, and employees, were forced to evacuate in a rush, uncertain whether they would have a home to return to. Others returned to homes heavily damaged by smoke; some even lost everything except the clothes on their back.
“In times like these, it is vital that we pull together as a community and support our fellow MiraCosta Spartans,” stated Dr. Sunny Cooke, superintendent/president.
In response to the fires, the MiraCosta College Foundation has created an Emergency Relief Fund to provide aid and assistance to members of the MiraCosta community whose lives have been turned upside down by this crisis. In the past week, the Emergency Relief Fund assisted a staff member and a student who lost their homes, thanks in large part to the timely and pivotal support of our community partner Balfour Beatty.
You can make a difference today by donating to this fund, which directly supports students and staff impacted by the fires. To contribute to the MiraCosta College Emergency Relief fund, please visit: https://giving.miracosta.edu/campaigns/emergency-relief
