“Wow! Thank you so much for this extremely generous donation! We are so blessed to be supported by community members and local businesses like Charlie's. The support from our local community is absolutely unprecedented. We have plans to utilize the donation to purchase outdoor picnic tables so that our students can enjoy meals together outdoors. Thanks again for this very exciting and generous donation.”
