Londa Mandron, my 9th grade son’s debate teacher at Classen School of Advanced Studies in Oklahoma City, lost her entire home in the devastating tornado which hit Moore, Oklahoma, on Monday, May 20, 2013. Several people have contacted me about things they can do, or their class at school can do, to help in the wake of this terrible tragedy. In addition to the options to send money which I shared on Monday, this is an excellent opportunity to help a specific person and family.
Catherine Armitage, another ClassenSAS parent, has created a list of items Mrs. Madron’s family needs on SignUpGenius. You can visit this link to sign up for items you would like to provide, and can drop them off at the ClassenSAS speech/debate room. If you need to ship them, contact Catherine by phone (405-626-7964) to figure out the best shipment address. You can also drop off or send a check, make it payable to ClassenSAS PTSA and write “Madron” in the subject line.
