During our recent annual food drive at Everett High School I spent a weekend at the Evergreen Way QFC collecting food. As I gave my repetitive spiel to all that entered, some people were enthusiastic, while others ignored me and some were quick to dispose of a flyer I was handing out. One man, however, stood out from the rest.
As he approached me, he asked questions about the food drive and seemed genuinely interested in how we were helping the community. After half-an-hour or so the man returned outside where my friend and I were standing. He pulled his cart next to us and said, “I know I have something in here for you.” Then he stated that all of the food was for us! The shopping cart was packed on top and bottom with shopping bags. He did not leave the store with one thing for himself.
Though we desperately were thanking him as he walked to his car we could not properly thank him without knowledge of his name. Therefore, by writing this letter, I hope that he will know how appreciated his donation is to Everett High School and the families the food will go to. He is one of the most generous people I ever have come in contact with.
