Students share thoughts and appreciation for grocery gift cards

" My mom has only $30 left in her wallet to buy groceries for the week and when I gave her this gift card she burst into tears and gave me a big hug. Thank you JMG "

"Thank you for the gift it really helps right now because of the fact that my mom got cut hours on Fridays and she normally spends $200 on food for the 5 of us and my stepdad will most likely start to get hours cut so the extra 100 will help A LOT. "

"Wow - this is very generous and unexpected.  We appreciate this gift from JMG and the Durham School very much. Thank you so much. This means a lot to our family right now. I hope you are safe and healthy at this time as well."

"Thank you to all the corporate sponsors and everyone that makes this program possible for all the students.  You will never know how much this helped out. We lost power on Thursday April 9, 2020 at 7:30 pm and did not get it back until Saturday night at 5:00 pm. We tried to use what we could out of the freezer but some stuff could not be saved. This will help us restock our freezer, it came just at the perfect time.  Thank You so much.

"This is so amazing! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! My husband is I'll missing this week's work with pneumonia and strep, I'm working remote as I'm on orientation for a new job, I lost a week of pay during transition, I am thankful and grateful and know families all around are  hit hard financially.  I know all of this has been stressful and anxiety provoking for Charlie, he was so proud to tell me that there was an email from you about this gift card, I thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Much peace and love to all of you."

Our Specialists are working with their students to connect with people who need it most
