Our team at the American Red Cross of Eastern Pennsylvania is certainly feeling the holiday spirit after receiving a donation from some very special people at Wallingford Elementary School!

This particular check came with a letter attached, where we learned the money being gifted was thanks to sweet treats, hard work, and the kind hearts in one second grade class. Teacher Sue Gaur at Wallingford Elementary wrote in part:

“We held a milk and cookie sale at our school, where the parents of WES baked cookies and staff donated the milk. My 2nd graders and I sold the milk and cookies for an hour each day for 4 days and raised a total of $3,250.”

The school decided they wanted to help those impacted by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, and that is where the funds will go. Thank you, to Ms. Gaur, her fellow teachers, her students, and students’ parents who made this donations possible!

Happy Holidays, indeed!
