Christmas Wish Campaign Donates Funds for School Lunches

The Sheridan Media Christmas Wish Campaign has donated $2,000 in leftover funds to Sheridan County School District #2. Sheridan Media Sales Manager Jim Schellinger explained that the money will go towards paying off school lunch debts.

In addition to the remaining Christmas Wish Funds, the Prairie Dog Community Church gifted an additional $500 to this effort. SCSD2 Assistant Superintendent Mitch Craft talked about how common school lunch debts are.

The announcement was made at a luncheon to thank the partners of the 2019 Christmas Wish Campaign. Those partners included Heartland Kubota, State Farm Agent Ann Gardner, First Federal Bank and Trust, Atlas Chiropractic, and BNSF. A recent study from the School Nutrition Association found that around 75% of districts have unpaid student meal debt.
