Donate today -- Community Giving Campaign

Crossroads student eats breakfast

So far this year, 160 SPPS staff members have given $43,878. At this same time last year, we had given over $52,000. Donate today to help us reach our goal. We aim to raise $160,000 by December 18.

You can make a difference in the lives of students by giving to any charity through the Community Giving Campaign. Learn more at and give online today.

For example, the Greater Twin Cities United Way provides funding for summer meal programs in SPPS and other school districts. In Minnesota during summer 2012, 130 schools and organizations operated 600 summer meal sites and served over 2.2 million meals to children.

Despite this effort, only about 15 percent of needy children receive summer meals. Just $10 provides 37 meals for hungry children and their families in our community. So your gift today, no matter how big or small, will go a long way to help hungry children during the summer months when they are out of school.
