RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A community hospital donated $5,000 to William Fox Elementary teachers Tuesday.
“As community partners, both Retreat and Fox are invested in the vibrancy, health, and wellbeing of our residents,” said Beth Matish, CEO of Retreat Doctors’ Hospital.
“We are pleased to be able to contribute $5,000 to Fox Elementary School teachers as they try to recover, build, and grow from such a heartbreak. Thank you, Principal Jacobs and everyone at Richmond Public Schools, for everything you are doing for our community.”
The Fox Elementary students are currently attending in-person learning temporarily at First Baptist Church.
The Richmond School Board estimated that $20 million will be needed to rebuild Fox.
