immediate needs.  Qualified grands are funded directly to nonprofit organizations and

Spencer Community Schools Foundation

The Classroom Recovery Fund is raising funds to support Lincoln Elementary teachers
(3rd, 4th,& 5th grades) and Johnson Elementary preschool teachers who lost
everything when their classrooms were flooded. The Foundation will be assisting in the
replacement of these necessary instructional items for students. Many of the teachers
have lost supplies and materials that they purchased with their personal funds. We want
to provide them with a donation to replace these items.
