Statewide, more than $65 million in extensive volunteer time was donated last year by California’s retired teachers.
Locally, our Lassen and Plumas Retired Teacher’s Association will again donate $100 to nine teachers — this year from McKinley, Meadow View, and Diamond View schools. Our CalRTA also will be donating scholarship monies to local high school seniors in pursuit of a college education.
The association encourages residents to say thank you to a retired teacher for their generous donation of time and money to our community.
According to a statement from the association, “Schools, churches, local organizations, and our wonderful community all benefit from this busy bunch.”
