In an amazing display of love and generosity, a coalition of Atlanta individuals, businesses, organizations, and churches made the holidays much brighter for all of the students at D.H. Stanton. Back in November, Pre-K Paraprofessional Meiko Jones asked all students to create a “Wish List” of a few presents that they would love to have for the holidays. It was a mysterious request, as the students had no idea that a group of special benefactors was preparing to grant their wishes.
On December 14th, a group of “Santas” arrived, heavy-laden with gifts and refreshments. Students were over-whelmed as they removed wrapping paper to discover items from the “Wish List.” One of the gifts included a bicycle for every second-grade student at D.H. Stanton!
We offer our deepest and most sincere thanks to McKenna Long and Aldridge, Smith and Howard, Robbin Geller Rudman and Dowd, CDC, The Collegiate Licensing Company, Jones Family and DHR, Christ the King, and Lady Shellie for this holiday miracle!
