Early contributions to Pellston Education Foundation exceeding expectations

PELLSTON – According to representatives of the fund, the first contributions to the educational fund Pellston far exceeded expectations.

The fund’s original fundraising campaign, Founders ’Corner, raised more than $ 55,000 from more than 100 different donors.

“We are just shocked by the tremendous support we have received,” said Carlin Smith, president of the foundation.

Smith said the community’s generosity assures that the foundation will begin its work on a solid basis.

In August, the foundation received official status, and in October, members of the Board of Trustees officially presented the foundation to the public.

“The funds we raised came to us in just three months,” Smith said.
