This is really cool! Apparently, Stubbs Elementary School in the Christina School District was very good this year. An anonymous donor paid off an outstanding debt the school had. Now being that this is a certain time of year, I can only assume it was Santa Claus. The guy took a recent ride through The First State!
But seriously, whoever did this, thank you! We need more of this in the world!

Anonymous Donor Pays off All Outstanding Meal Balances
at Stubbs Elementary School
Wilmington, DE – An anonymous donor has made the holiday season brighter for families at Frederick Douglass Stubbs Elementary School in Wilmington. The District’s Child Nutrition Services Department announced that an anonymous check in the amount of $1,283.07 has been sent on behalf of Stubbs, which is sufficient to clear all outstanding meal account balances at the school. The person or group responsible has chosen to remain anonymous, but that has not stopped Stubbs Elementary School’s staff and students from rejoicing over this welcome news.
“Our school community was thrilled to learn about this act of generosity,” said Stubbs principal Jeffers Brown. “We have families who struggle to pay their bills during the holidays, and this incredible gift provides welcome relief to many of our parents. Knowing their children’s outstanding meal balance has been paid will make the season a lot brighter for them. Whoever the anonymous donor or group of donors was, our students and families thank them sincerely for this donation.”
Frederick Douglass Stubbs Elementary School serves 344 students in preschool through Grade 5.
