Sutterville students raise $11,500 for local charity

e-Connections Post Sutterville

Sutterville Elementary School fifth- and sixth-graders worked together to raise nearly $11,500 for Family Promise, a nonprofit association of churches committed to helping homeless families achieve lasting independence.

Through Family Promise, homeless families are given a warm, safe place to start over and are helped in developing skills to achieve their goals. 

Each of Sutterville’s six fifth- and sixth-grade classes raised $100. Students then wrote letters to local businesses asking them to match the donations. Many Sacramento businesses and individuals responded with contributions.

The students are now challenging others in the district to help families in need. Visit sacfamilypromise.org to learn more or to donate.

Family Promise is a 501c non-profit, Tax I.D. #68-0404332.
