One Town is located in the small town of Wrightwood. Wrightwood has a population of approximately 5,000 people.
Wrightwood is separated from the surrounding communities on all sides by mountains. It is serviced by three major
roads which serve as arteries in and out of the town. Wrightwood is an unincorporated town, with no government
representation other than the County government. Wrightwood residents do not receive mail at their houses due to the
rural nature of our town. Needless to say Wrightwood is a unique town in a unique rural setting within the largest
county in America, San Bernardino County. Wrightwood is so small that tragic accidents, deaths and other unfortunate
incidents do not remain secret for long. Most events that affect our residents are announced by word of mouth, and
this is how most requests for assistance reach our Board.
Yes, please review our submission guidelines.
All grants, donations, scholarships and other gifts shall be reviewed after receipt by the selection committee. The

accidents, deaths and other unfortunate incidents.
If a bread-winning family member has been injured or killed in an accident or due to other tragic circumstances you
may submit a request for assistance.
