SACRAMENTO – Southern California is fighting devastating wildfires in the greater Los Angeles region, which have shut down highways, schools and businesses and forced thousands of residents to evacuate their homes. California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald issued the following statement:

“California State PTA is extremely concerned for the families impacted by the devastating wildfires raging in Southern California.

“As the president of a statewide organization, everyone who calls California “home” is my neighbor, and my thoughts are with all those who have been affected. They are our families, friends, colleagues, volunteers and members and we remain steadfast in our commitment to support them as they rebuild and recover.
