Howell 3rd Grader Raises Money to Pay Off Students’ Lunch Debt [VIDEO]
A lot of students at Challenger Elementary School in Howell have Cayden Taipalus to thank for making sure they have a hot lunch. The 8-year old has taken it upon himself to raise money to pay off other students’ school lunch debt.
Cayden tells WXYZ that he wanted to find a way to help when a student in front of him in the lunch line had to put his lunch tray down because he didn’t have money to pay.
He began collecting donations, taking bottles back, and with the help of his parents has set up this website, which has raised over $6,500 so far.
