It’s the result of the latest KRQE Cares campaign. The school’s principal says the donation is always a big help for the students and their families.
“We are hoping that it gives them the confidence to come to school every day and it takes one less thing off their parents’ plates to have to be able to purchase,” said Lavaland Elementary Principal Nicole Jaramillo. All of the schools’ 408 students received a voucher.
