Orchard View Students Experience Magic of the Holiday Season

Posted by Deborah See on 12/23/2021

Orchard View Alternative High School students received a surprise when they were called down to social worker Gianni Palanca's office: they received gift cards, thanks to the generosity of the Lluesma family, the United Way, and of the faculty & staff who contributed individual donations. Mr. Palanca and guidance counselor Tanya Fridovich worked to ensure that nearly every student received a gift. The Lluesmas also provided 10 full turkey meals with all the fixings, and the United Way helped to stock a hygiene closet at the school. It was a wonderful reminder for the students that there are kind people who truly care about others, and they create Holiday magic. Thank you to all for your generosity!
