The community came together last week to celebrate our students. The Chamber partnered with The City of Richfield Police Department and the Joint Community Police Partnership, Richfield Public & Charter Schools, The Salvation Army, The MN Brain Injury Alliance and many more community wide organizations all geared towards supporting the students of Richfield. Over a 1,500 families attended the event. Students were given free school supplies and many other resources were provided to help them on their path to success.
