Schools win with funds donated based on Giants runs scored

By Andrea Koskey
Bay Area schools will receive a Christmas gift in the form of $3,000 from Wells Fargo.

As part of Wells Fargo/KNBR Run Challenge, the San Francisco-based bank donated $100 for every run the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants scored this baseball season.

Nearly of $85,000 was raised.

Twenty-nine Bay Area schools will benefit from the fundraiser – including nine schools in the San Francisco Unified School District. All schools will receive roughly $3,000 to purchase school supplies, improve facilities and support extra-curricular activities.

The checks will be presented to San Francisco schools at the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy’s annual Winter Peace Festival at 6 p.m. Thursday.

In addition to Harvey Milk, Starr King Elementary and Sunset Elementary School are among recipients of the donations as well as Woodrow Wilson Elementary in Daly City and James Flood Magnet School in Menlo Park
