Within 10 days they raised $6000 for Folsom Elementary PTA to aid students with school supplies. They met the first wave of requests and, thanks to the great pricing from Main's Market Grocery, monies are left over to help with the growth in student count and needs throughout the school year.

“One call to the Northshore Community Foundation and within 24 hours we had an account for the donations and a process and support for purchasing and delivering supplies. They made it easy, and transparent and that gave donors confidence in how their funds would be put to use. So an idea about how the two of us could help quickly turned into dozens of people making a difference,” said Cindy Sibley.
