Many wishes added up to a wonderful gift to start the New Year at the St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice Program.

SCVRJP, with offices in River Falls, was selected by the Mall of America Pond Fund to receive all the coins thrown into MOA fountains during January. The total donation amounted to $536.42.

The Pond Fund gift resulted from an application submitted by a SCVRJP intern seeking support for the Walk for Awareness event. SCVRJP was notified in December that it was selected to receive the Pond Fund donation for January.

SCVRJP’s mission is to create a culture of peace and belonging. As a non-profit organization, it relies heavily on donations.
