The school is asking students and community members to bring in Safeway, Target and gas gift cards to help his family out and give them a holiday season to remember. Donations can be dropped off in the front office of Burlingame High School at 1 Mangini Way in Burlingame. Contact Sue Glick at 558-2873 for more information.
