The Sunshine Fund applied for a grant from Allina, and Allina donated $520 to the Sunshine Fund.

"We are so grateful for all the support this River Falls Community has given us," said Gray.

River Falls State Bank employees also donated to the Sunshine fund out of their own pockets for a total of $400.
