School Lunch Debts Paid by Plant City Elks Lodge
- Written by Plant City Elks
On May 23, Plant City Exalted Ruler, Marty Carroll, and his wife, Shelly, presented 14 checks amounting to $2,400 to Sharon Morris, Superintendent for Area VI Hillsborough County Schools on behalf of the principals of those schools. The donation is to cover outstanding lunch balances for students. The Elks Gratitude Grant provided $2,000 and the remaining $400 was donated by lodge members. Morris was very appreciative and explained the delinquent lunch balances have consequences for the children. The schools can withhold report cards and diplomas for unpaid balances. She also explained that these balances are not from the families that qualify for free or reduced lunch costs but from families that could be struggling.
