Having your house burn down is a nightmare. Having your school, community members and friends step up to help is a dream come true.
I want to thank Independence High School and the El Dorado Union High School District for hosting the Chavez Family Benefit Spaghetti Feed and Silent Auction. I’d also like to thank the dozens of local businesses who donated items and lent their support.
As my family and I struggle to put our lives back together, it is good to know that I live in a community with so many kind and generous people.
