I had to take Brook to school this morning because I forgot I was in the van. It has a very slow defroster for the windows and a scrapper was no where to be found.
Brook's school is in a poor district. Almost 75% of the children there are on the free/reduced lunch program. During the month of November they collected canned goods for the food bank here in town. but that was not the only thing they did. The last 2 weeks of November they had a jar on the front desk to collect money for ToysForTots. The kids donated their ice cream money on Fridays for it. Today they posted on the sign outside that the kids had raised $600. I am so proud of these kids. They could have bought an ice cream, but instead decided to help another child that is less fortunate then they are. I have no doubt that some of those very children that donated their money will be the recipient of gifts from some of the programs around here in our area.
They are the true angels of Christmas.
