Sidney Mae Olson Rainbow🌈 Scholarship Fund

Andover’s Olson family lost five-year-old Sidney Mae in the tragic Elm Square accident. And because the sweet little girl has asked for a “rainbow” birthday party. Because “it’s everyone’s favorite colors.” The family has established the Sidney Mae Olson Rainbow Scholarship fund for SHED Children’s Campus. Where Sidney attended the Springboard to Kindergarten program. The family hopes this fund provides opportunity to children who might not otherwise have it. And that it adds rich diversity to the SHED community for years to come.

Please Consider Giving to the Rainbow Scholarship Fund
