The non-profit Millbrae Education Foundation (MEF) will be appearing in local schools this Wednesday and Thursday for its big fundraising push.
MEF volunteers are stationed at Millbrae schools, asking parents to donate $450 per student, or however much they are able to.
Last year MEF raised $260,000, which was a nearly $100,000 increase from the previous year's efforts.
That money is being used this academic year to fund a brand new technology program that provides instruction for students and includes two newly hired teachers, to rejuvenate programs that took a hit from budget cuts and sustain a district-wide communication system.
