This Christmas season Platinum Payments had the awesome opportunity to be able to assist a local high school. Many of the students going to this high school come from very hard backgrounds, some work jobs every day to support their families and some don't have enough to eat without the school pantry filling in. This is one of their last chances to get a high school diploma.
This school helps them graduate and strives to prevent them from dropping out. We have never met such dedicated teachers and staff. They truly give their hearts every day to help these kids be successful.
We were thrilled to help them by providing stockings for each student, filled with goodies and surprises for the holidays, along with a donation to their food pantry.
We wish you all could have seen their face as we dropped off the stockings, food, treats and stuffers for them. It wasn't as much as we would have loved to be able to do, but to them it was exciting!
A couple of the students asked what all of the stuff was for? The school librarian told them it was for them - a little Christmas fun and cheer! They tried to act all cool, but you could tell they were incredibly excited, you could see it in their faces. It was so humbling to witness and we are so lucky to be a part of what they do.
We don't share this to paise the small effort we made, but to acknowledge that there are simple opportunities to serve and love all around our community. At Platinum Cares, this is our goal, as a fantastic team and company - To help and assist where we can. You are such a huge part of that! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being such fantastic ambassadors and helping us help others!
