Every Central Gwinnett high school student with a delinquent lunch meal plan bill will be able to eat again after Christmas break thanks to a Georgia police corporal and his family.
Matt Stoner, a corporal with the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s department, and his family, decided that instead of exchanging gifts this year for Christmas, they were going to help others.
Stoner and his family went to the Central Gwinnett High school and paid off all 150 of the currently delinquent meal plan accounts of the students there.
Now all 150 kids will be able to enjoy lunches again in January.
The bill that the Stoner family paid, which came to $ 280.00, paid off every account of all the 9th through 12th grade students that had delinquencies.
The family made the decision together and all the children were happy not to receive gifts this year in exchange for giving this charitable gift.
Matt Stoner did not want any publicity, but a fellow officer, Detective Shannon Volkodav, told the story to local news station, Action 2 News.
The Stoner’s didn’t do any interviews.
The Central Gwinnett High school principal, Maryanne Grimes, said this in a statement:
