A local school is asking for a little help from the community.

Riverside Educational Center, 552 West Main Street in Grand Junction, is raising money to help support their programs.

The non-profit school is hoping to raise $10,000 by Thanksgiving Day. Hence, the campaign name 10K by Turkey Day.

They have already received two anonymous donations of $1,000 each. The staff of around 80 volunteers and it's 100 students are now turning to the Grand Junction community for some help.

Do you know anyone who attended this Center? Did you? Is it different than a 'normal' school? Should the community help support Riverside's programs?

If you have any ideas, would like to help in some way or if you would like to make a contribution please contact Joy Hudak at (970) 589-5039.
