did another project in Milwaukee when a friend of my son appealed for a used back pack via facebook. A new back pack was arranged filled with school supplies. If there is money enough, I will continue with this little venture.
today was amazing. My student was so excited, he was
just beaming. It was the most awesome moment. I wish I could have video
taped the whole thing for you. He tried on the back pack and adjusted
the straps, let me help him figure it all out, and he just said smiling,
how it fit perfectly. He loved it. I asked him if he told his family
and he said he did right after the day I talked to him. You really made
this happen. I honestly cannot thank you enough. It was such a great
moment. Thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart.
In honor of Julie, the donated funds were used to purchase winter clothing for a family that is experiencing homelessness. Four of the seven siblings currently attend Lake View, and all four were in need of boots, snow pants, hats, and mittens. The ability to easily and quickly help this family (with these readily accessible funds) was so, so helpful.
Thank you so much for thinking of us!
