Principal Mary Jo Walker at Sunset Elementary School in Coalinga was informed that there would be some sort of donation on Friday the 13th from Dollar General at 2 PM. An assembly was planned, and children were geared up for a special afternoon. But no one was prepared for the donation given to the school by Dollar General: a check for $50,000.
This story is still developing. Plans, comments, and more will be forthcoming. Right now, it’s time to celebrate such generosity to Sunset School, its teachers, staff, and students.
