This Sunday, proceeds from the Mustard Seed Spin bike race on the American River will again fund education for homeless children.

Doctor Victoria Akins founded the event to fund the Mustard Seed School.

She says it keep kids from falling behind … even as their world falls down around them.

AKINIS: "The stay at the Mustard Seed School is about three-to-four weeks, but sometimes can be prolonged.  And it's just an amazing, nurturing environment for these kids.  It helps them catch up with their curriculum  and get back on track."

The event has raised a total of $120,000 in the past six years. 

Also supplying help for the homeless  is the city's "Ann Land and Bertha Henschel Memorial Fund.

The fund has $110,000 in grants to hand out to qualified non-profit agencies.
