Random acts of kindness - moms pay off school lunch debts

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Several parents of Shoreline Schools students got a great idea just before Christmas.

A few of us got together to make it easy to help Shoreline families have one less worry this holiday. 
Many kids arrive at school without a lunch and without money to buy one. When the cafeteria gives them a meal, they rack up a deficit. 
Wouldn't it be a beautiful gift to Shoreline families to find their outstanding balance with the school district food service erased for the start of the year?

They found out that $2,433 would pay off every child's debt for the entire Shoreline School District.

They set up a GoFundMe page and told all their friends via social media.

The donations started coming in. Some people paid $5 or $10 - a few gave $100. Most donations were in the $25 range.

Ten days later, they had met their goal and closed the page. All in all, 77 people contributed.

And every child had a clean slate for the start of 2017.
