FORWARD, the River Falls Public Schools Foundation, would like to thank the community for its contributions to December fundraising efforts.
The Holiday Concert featuring The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade was extremely successful and provided a seasonal family friendly activity for young and old.
Local businesses and sponsors provided items for the silent auction and many wonderful baked goods. Dick’s Fresh Market and The Dish and the Spoon assisted in ticket sales.
The new initiative, the Alternative Holiday Gift Card, was successful as well
A special thank you is due to the building secretaries who acted as points of contact for this effort. The Pretty Good Yarn Store and The Fox Den Used Book Store provided these cards in downtown River Falls.
This community support has enabled the Foundation to continue its mission to provide grants to teachers and students that promote excellence and innovation in our schools.
The new round of grants will be awarded near the end of January.
