An act of kindness was reported back in September.  The story is based on a generous and loving man named Jerry Fenton. Local resident Mr. Fenton walked into his old school, Grimes Elementary of Burlington with a smile and check to pay the overdue student lunch accounts for the WHOLE school for the year. He wrote a check for $700 to the school lunch program. The check paid off the $458 that its students owed in unpaid lunch money and added $242 to pay for future shortcomings. He later said on Facebook, “I gave them extra money in the account so that every kid at Grimes Elementary school won’t be hungry the rest of this school year”; “Now it’s your turn to do something good for your fellow man.” As news of this charitable donation spread, Fenton stated that he did this to take action about the handfuls of students who go hungry everyday in America. Later, the students and the school said, “Thank you so much Mr. Fenton. Our hearts (and stomachs) are full”.
