More than 100 Richmond residents, at a rally just after the assault at Richmond High, have volunteered to help try to quell the violence at all of West Contra Costa County schools.

There is a meeting for them and potential volunteers Tuesday evening at 6:00 pm. at Richmond High.

A fund has been specifically set up to benefit the young woman and her family. Parties may send a check to Richmond High School, 1250 23rd St., Richmond , CA 94804. Checks should be made out to "Richmond High School Student Fund" with "Sex assault victim" on the memo line.
