Donor Brittany Lynch commented, “I want to donate to the North East Educational Foundation because, as a military family, this has been the best school district my children have ever experienced. They feel important, empowered and confident. Thank you”

Sharon Ackah, a Roan Forest Elementary School parent stated, “I think Roan Forest is doing an awesome job for the kids!”

In the Redland Oaks Elementary fundraiser, Brenda Sheridan commented, “Hope this goes a long way to help those that need it in Ms D’s classes.”

Funds raised during the Big Give go to each campus that participated and to Innovative Grants through the North East Educational Foundation.

Thank you to all the NEEF Chiefs for their fundraising efforts, and the parents and community that donated to the Big Give.
