Dartmouth Teacher Receives Unexpected Donations for Classroom
It's easy to get stressed out, upset and flat-out infuriated while scrolling online these days. It can seem like everyone is out for a fight and that no one can get along anymore. But have you ever seen something online that has restored your faith in humanity?
Allow me to introduce you to the "BUY NOTHING Southcoast MA" group on Facebook, where members can list items they no longer want or need for free. Many members also share items they're currently searching for.
Kimberly Carreiro, a special education teacher at Quinn Elementary School in Dartmouth, posted in the group Monday afternoon, writing that she was looking for eight to ten kids' lap desk trays for her classroom, similar to this one on Amazon.
Within just a couple hours of posting in the group, Carreiro had already received many comments back. Some offered up used trays they had laying around their houses. Others were more than willing to donate money to help fund the trays. One woman named Brittany Machado even went ahead and ordered five trays from the Wareham Walmart, placing them in Carreiro's name so she could pick them up at her convenience.
I mean, how sweet is that? And according to Carreiro, this is far from the first time she's witnessed this kind of selflessness in the BUY NOTHING Southcoast MA page.
"This group is amazing and I love how people are always willing to help each other out," Carreiro said. "This made me get so happy and emotional that people are so kind and generous!"
