In Oklahoma, a man named Tommy Kelley donated $10,000 (W11.3 million) to help Putnam City Public Schools pay off their student lunch debt. He said, “It’s just a way during this season to take burdens off the parents who can’t afford lunches, you know. It’s no fault of their own.” His donation resolved one-third of the schools’ student lunch debt. Kelley donated through his Some Day Soon Foundation, which he started a year ago.
