Wallace Middle School students recently received a packet of letters and drawings from the children in Sri Lanka who received our tsunami donation. The drawings depicted the devastation of the tsunami and how they felt about the destruction. Their letters reflected their appreciation to our students for the donations, saying, "You saw our situation, knew our children needed help with their education, and you gave us that help. This really means a lot to us. My family and I thank you from our heart for all your help" and "because you all brought the schoolbooks, our children are happily going to school. Like that, you also bought us food. We don't know how to thank you for all your help."
