The San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center is grateful to the PARTNERS Network of Family Resource Centers and to Nevada County’s Superintendent of Schools for funding a $10,000 grant request that will enable us to spruce up the Oak Tree School Campus and provide additional activities for children. We plan to use the funds to upgrade some of Oak Tree’s plumbing, have a few large trees trimmed or removed, and do some much needed deep cleaning and maintenance projects. The grant will also help support this year’s summer Sports Camp and provide more ongoing activities for school-aged and preschool-aged children. We are grateful to the Nevada County Board of Education for granting our proposal at their first meeting of 2015. We vow to do our very best to spend this gift wisely and well.
