Merry Christmas from Waukegan and Mrs. Ahern’s students!
Here’s a lovely letter that made our day from a teacher who won in one of DollarDays’ monthly Facebook contests, and has kept in touch with us ever since. In fact, Virginia Heraz, our Director of Marketing, visited the classroom in Waukegan, IL last fall! Really, this is what life is all about—caring about others and giving without expectation. Teacher Julie Ahern and her second grade students have a huge place in our hearts. Thank you to them for caring and remembering us during the holidays. From all of us at DollarDays, we wish you a happy holiday season! You make us smile!
Here’s the letter:
My students asked if I would send Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday greetings to you! They also wanted to say thank you again for the blankets that you gave them. Last week they completed a series of writing challenges and then very proudly received the blankets to take home for the holidays. I am including a picture of your friend (seen at the restaurant!) Ezekiel holding two of the ever so soft blankets. Miss Savannah also asked if I would take her picture (I thought I would include it as there is a child sprinting down the hallway, lol).
Thank you again for your incredible kindnesses towards my students -you are a Christmas angel to them. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year. It is sub-zero weather here in Waukegan so I hope you are enjoying much warmer weather!
