Many wishes add up to a wonderful gift to start the New Year at the St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice Program (SCVRJP).

SCVRJP was selected by the Mall of America (MOA) Pond Fund to receive all of the coins thrown into MOA fountains during January 2014. The total donation amounted to $536.42.

The Pond Fund gift resulted from an application submitted by an SCVRJP intern, seeking support for SCVRJP’s Walk for Awareness event. SCVRJP was notified in December they were selected to receive the Pond Fund donation for January 2014. The donation was received in the form of all the coins from the fountains throughout the MOA.

Donations to SCVRJP support its mission of creating a culture of peace and belonging. As a non-profit organization, it relies heavily on donations from the community and this donation was a fun way to start off the New Year.
