Willowside Middle School sixth through eighth graders are coming through in a big way for Middletown students whose lives were upturned by the devastating Valley wildfire.

Since the September fire, the Willowside students have been selling t-shirts emblazoned with what became the post-fire Middletown rallying cry: “Together We can Make a Difference,” and “Adversity Makes You Stronger.”

The students — who are in the Oak Grove Union School District just west of Santa Rosa — bought have raised just about $2,000 and they’re not done yet. The plan is to deliver the money (every penny of it) by hand to students at Middletown Middle School on Dec. 11.

Congratulations and well done to the Willowside students, who are one piece of a battery of determined efforts on the part of local schools to assist Lake County fire victims.
