Letter: After fire, much support

Last week there was a house fire in Newport that destroyed the house and left numerous people instantly homeless. Two of the people affected by this tragedy were Newport Elementary students. As a result, Newport Elementary has been a focal point for support for the family. What we have witnessed has been truly remarkable. Local businesses, organizations, Newport Elementary families, students, staff, residents and people from all over the metro area have contributed support in the form of cash and material goods. Anonymous people have also offered RVs and storage areas for the family.

On behalf of Newport Elementary, I would like to express my sincere appreciation toward everyone who has helped this Newport family. Your acts of kindness have truly made a difference in this family's life.
