Miller Rail Farms Challenges Growers To Support Nonprofit Rail Road Flat Group

Rail Road Flat, CA...Friends of Rail Road Flat School (FORRFS) thanks Millerrail Farms in Rail Road Flat for their recent $3,000 donation. Out of the many programs that the non-profit implements to provide enrichment at the Rail Road Flat School, Millerrail Farms chose the Music Programs and Preschool Programs to benefit from their donation. The services of FORRFS are vast, and they welcome donors to choose a specific program. Without donations such as this FORRFS could not maintain our average yearly operating budget of $20,000.00. FORRFS operates solely on donations, grants, and fundraising. A spokesperson says she’s grateful that Millerrail Farms ”sees the value in sustaining our group and helping us continue providing services to the students and community. “

millerrailfarms


The FORRFS mission is to preserve the right of children to be educated in the community in which they live. FORRFS is comprised of parents, teachers, community members, and school alumni providing programs that give students a broader education that will result in increased student success. Additionally FORRFS provide community support in various ways including wellness workshops, free community meals, counseling, “Makers Place” workshops and more. FORRFS operates independently from the Calaveras Unified School District as a community based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operating under the auspices of Blue Mountain Community Renewal Council. EIN #68-0346108.

Millerrail Farms would like to challenge all growers to support the community groups that support the towns they live in. The District Two area of Calaveras County surrounding RRF School has seen a dramatic population influx, largely compromised of Cannabis Cultivators. Without groups like FORRFS, these small towns would struggle to keep viable . To make a tax deductible donation to Friends of Rail Road Flat School, checks may be sent to P.O. Box 223, Rail Road Flat. CA 95248.

The School Open House is scheduled for May 25th and will be a good time to see the FORRFS Enrichment Program offerings first hand. Additionally they offer a farm to fork free community meal the last Thursday of every month – open to all to come and dine with the students.

Good job Rail Road Flat School, taking POT money to support your students. What's going to happen when commercial grows gets overturned? I bet the $3000 was all in cash wasn't it? Low lifes

    Your comment shows how self righteous you are! As per the Calaveras Enterprise, The upcountry areas of the County (District 2 especially) voted for Measure D. We welcome the regulated farmers into our communities. The Millers appreciate their community and have shown their appreciation with their donation to the local school. The same school which just a few years had struggled to survive. Please don't be so closed minded.

        So self righteous. Some people like to donate whether or not they get a deduction on their tax return. How much do you donate to your community and especially if it would be nondeductible?

        Trump won't, so why should you require that of a private citizen?

They want pot growers to give them money? For the love of Jesus, these people won't even buy soap for themselves.

Why blame the school for where the money comes from? Liquor companies donate too
