Friends Of Rail Road Flat School Thanks Nile Farms Cooperative

Rail Road Flat, CA...ends of Rail Road Flat School (FORRFS) thanks Nile Farms Cooperative for their recent $3,000 donation. The services of FORRFS are vast. Without donations such as this FORRFS could not maintain their average yearly operating budget of $20,000.00. FORRFS operates solely on donations, grants, and fundraising under the auspices of Blue Mountain Community Renewal Council. A spokesperson says she’s grateful that NFC ”sees the value in sustaining our group and helping us continue providing services to the students and community. “

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.

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, please make checks out to BMCRC with FORRFS in the memo and mail to FORRFS P.O. Box 223, Rail Road Flat. CA 95248.

FORRFS hold an annual Fundraiser called Tiger Fest scheduled for May 13th 2017 that is an evening of authentic food, entertainment and an extensive silent auction. The School Open House is scheduled for May 25th. . Additionally they offer a farm to fork free community meal the last Thursday of every month – They hope that all community members will attend one of their events to experience first hand all the innovate things FORRFS are up too.

    Let's see some matching GRAPE money!! Schools and libraries are wonderful things to support and it is so heartwarming to see people giving back to the community. Thank you for your donation.

    This is a school we are talking about. An underpaid school, trying to educate our future leaders, scientists, teachers, etc. Yes, maybe the money was donated from a marijuana group but this is our changing society, like it or not, it has become legal. If we have people in this 'profession' willing to donate money to help our children thrive it is better than nothing. I know this area personally, but did not grow up there, but I lived there for a few years and if I could I would be back there. There may be pot growers but the community is dedicated to keep this school alive! Why send your children far away to other schools in the area? When they could grow up with a sense of respect and unity for their town and local school? I am a preschool teacher who used to live in the area and wish I could send my six year old to this school! Mark Twain has no school pride or respect like RRF does!

Maybe the Dope farm could donate more money to keep the ROP Program going! Loosing two teachers jobs, so non chalantly, and doing away with a program that students use!

Shame on them for taking the devil's bribe.

All funding should be taken from them.
