Paying it Forward
So, the boys basketball team headed to Des Moines today for round 2 of the State Championship. They won by 7 points against a Cedar Rapids team.
We didn't have much time between Wed.'s victory and today's game to round up chartered fan buses, but managed to get 2 or 3. One of our staff members had a list of kids who were not going to be able to afford to go. He took it upon himself to take up a collection from our staff to cover the cost of their bus trip and ticket ($25). Because of the generosity of our staff, 24 kids were able to go. PLUS, once they got on the bus, they were handed a plain white envelope, that when they opened revealed a $10 bill for them to spend on food at the arena. I hope they remember that and pay it forward some day when they are asked to pitch in so that a group of kids can go do something fun.
