The McFarland Unified School District has planned a Memorial Service for Boys Basketball coach Fernando Alaniz.
After collaborating with the family, it was decided that Wednesday, March 9 at 2 p.m. was the best day and time for this service. The event will take place in the McFarland High School quad area and will be open to the community.
“Thank you all for how respectful you have been in the coverage of this tragedy,” District Superintendent Aaron Resendez said.
We wanted to share that our local Teacher’s Association is working to help provide financial support for the Alaniz Family.
As our MUSD family navigates the devastating loss of Fernando Alaniz, we are mindful of the emotional and financial impact that this is having on the Alaniz family.
Many members of our community have asked how they can provide support, the McFarland Teacher’s Association is organizing the following fundraising effort as an option.Anyone who has the desire and the means to help the family at this time, can donate using Go Fund Me.  The family has asked that we use the same account that was established for his previous battle with Covid.
