Organized by: Amanda Prewitt

THE STORY:

This week, two Knight High School students suffered an incredible loss. The home of Ammy (Class of '17) and Angie Martinez Hernandez (Class of 2020) was burnt to the ground with little left. Luckily, no one was injured in the fire, but the family had to flee their home immediately, leaving with nothing but their car and the clothes on their backs.

This family of five (Josh Martinez, age 11, is a student at Manzanita Elementary) is currently staying in a local motel while trying to put their lives back together. This means that they do not have clothes, food, toiletries, or any of the comforts a home brings. These amazing girls have already returned to school and their first concern was having to replace their textbooks. Graciously, the Antelope Valley Unified district office has vowed to furnish the children with new school supplies and KHS will replace all books without cost.

I personally have known Ammy since she was a freshman in my AVID class and have had the pleasure of watching her grow into one of the most selfless, caring students I have ever met. Despite leaving the AVID program, Ammy remains active in community service and raises hundreds of dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during our Pennies for Patients Drive each year. If you've ever met a girl walking around with a donation box around her neck, shaking people down for change, that's Ammy. Ammy and Angie are also active members of the DDE Academy, as well as Key Club and Film Club.

If you are able to help this family out with any amount at all, it would make a tremendous difference.
