"Well. I wish you could have seen the joy in the children. I went up late in the day to see a high risk kiddo before break and it was so fun to see the kids. I went into one of the 5th grade classrooms and one of the children I most worry about food wise was soooo excited!!! He took each item out of the bag one thing at a time and just joyously celebrated it. Pure happiness and spontaneous celebration!! He sort of embraced each thing and hugged it to himself. Priceless.
Thank you all soooo much!!! Feel like crying to know how much that helps."
