It’s not the first donation of its kind. District spokesperson, Aubrey Mika Chancellor said NEISD also recently received a donation of $1,050 from local Baptist churches.

On the district’s Facebook page, Principal Carol Pierce at Huebner Elementary School said she uses these moments to teach and give thanks.

“Huebner Elementary’s motto for this year is, ‘In a world where you can be anything, BE KIND,’ and every day we talk to our students about sharing kindness with others. It is a beautiful thing to be the recipient of such a generous and kind donation for our students. We are grateful for the generosity and kindness of this amazing donor!” Pierce said.
