Fifth Grader Donates $300 Life Savings to Stop Teacher Layoffs – Education – GOOD

Fifth grade student Jocelyn Lam gave her teacher an envelope full of $1, $5, and $10 bills totaling $300—money she’d earned over several years for doing chores and getting good grades. She also included a handwritten letter addressed to the Arcadia Unified school board and superintendent, saying, “I really hope this $300 will help save the teachers that are about to be laid off. I also hope this is enough to save more than one teacher.” Her donation was completely unsolicited and took the school staff by surprise.
