VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

The Vancouver community has quickly thrown their support behind students at Crestline Elementary School, where a massive fire destroyed the school's main building Sunday.

Those wishing to help can donate money through the Evergreen School District Foundation and earmark the donation for Crestline Elementary School.

A school district spokeswoman said the schools will need cash as soon as possible to replace all of the books and supplies that were in the classrooms. To make a donation, click here: https://evergreenschooldistrictfoundation.com/Default.aspx?tabid=187&e=1

A campaign called "Books for Crestline" is also under way as the school tries to rebuild classroom libraries.

Books for Crestline will hold book drives at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (13600 SE McGillivray Blvd.) on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon. Money can also be donated at booksforcrestline.blogspot.com.

On Friday, Feb. 8, 104.1 FM The Fish and New Seasons Market will be collecting school supplies and cash donations for Crestline school. Supplies for teachers and children will be collected from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the New Seasons Market at 2100 SE 164th Ave. in Vancouver.

Donations were collected Sunday at Burgerville restaurant locations at Cascade Park and Fisher's Landing. Customers dropped off cash and school supplies. Plans are also in the works for a number of fundraisers at the restaurants.
