$12,500 Raised in 24 Hours for Local Missing Girl’s Search
Posted by Teressa Francis — April 5, 2012
CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA (April 2, 2012) – Through the efforts of Intero agents and employees, Intero Real Estate Services was able to raise $12,500 in just 24 hours to go toward the search efforts for Sierra LaMar, the Morgan Hill teenager who went missing last week.
The 15 year old girl was abducted from her neighborhood on her way to catch the school bus. Search parties have been out looking for her all week.
The contribution was presented to Mark Klaas (father of Polly Klaas) and The Klaaskids Foundation on Thursday by Cathy Jackson, Intero Foundation President and Kathie Kingston, who headed up the campaign (see video of donation here). The Klaas Foundation is assisting the authorities in the search. The money will go toward flying in professionals and experts, getting more search dogs, buying more walkie talkies and other needed supplies, as well as food for the search teams.
“The purpose of the Intero Foundation is to positively impact the well-being of the children in the communities we serve. I can't think of anything more worthy and in line with our cause than this,” States Cathy Jackson. “We’re just happy we could help.”
