Students raise $2000 so custodian can visit San Francisco
Filed under: Day Care & Education
Like the students at Magnum Elementary School in Raleigh, North Carolina, who raised $2,000 so Joe Venable, their 71-year-old custodian, could experience his life-long dream -- visiting San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
And that generosity only kept growing when word of the trip spread across the country. Donations started pouring in from all over the United States -- eventually totaling $3,500. Then the mayor's office in San Francisco organized the itinerary for the custodian and his wife, including a personal tour by a bridge supervisor. On top of that, the Hilton Hotel where Venable and his wife were staying gave them 2 extra nights for free -- turning their 3 day visit into a 5 day vacation.
I feel all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it.
