The holidays can be a time of surprises and unexpected gifts. Recently, the Food Service Department received gifts from community members who wanted to help families in need pay off a portion of their lunch account credits. The donors, who wish to remain anonymous, asked Food Service Director Barbara Albi to use the monetary donations to pay down the balances owed by some families.
“I have heard stories like this nationally and am amazed that in our small community people have generously made this offer,” said Mrs. Albi. “It’s like having a Secret Santa. It’s especially nice that it comes at this time of year which can be financially difficult for some of our families.”
