Piedmont Elementary Lunch Debt Paid By Anonymous Donor
Helping give credence to the fact that there are still good people out there, an anonymous person has given a charitable gift to a Duluth school that will go a long way towards maintaining the nutritional needs of our kids. Piedmont Elementary School was recently the recipient of a donation that closed out all of the unpaid lunch accounts for the year.
According to our news partners at WDIO, the anonymous donation was the result of a husband giving his wife a Mothers Day gift: "Principal Beth Shermoen said a man stopped into the office a couple weeks ago and asked her about the unpaid breakfast and lunch accounts." It soon became clear that the person wasn't just inquiring about a specific account, but rather all of them. School staff calculated the total - which came to $2,209. The gentleman later returned with a check for the entire amount.
While the donor wanted to remain anonymous, he did elaborate that it was a Mother's Day-related gift. He asked he what she wanted and the donation was what she requested.
