Teachers at Mills Park Middle School in Raleigh, NC, have set up a GoFundMe page to help their school custodian meet the closing costs to purchase a Habitat for Humanity home.
Teachers set up the GoFundMe page to help Stewart with her financial difficulties to meet the final closing costs as a way to thank her for her continued dedication towards the school and her family.
“She’ll be here at the crack of dawn to open doors for teachers, let us in, and get started on our special things that we have going on,” Mills Park Middle School teacher Mary Dyer told ABC 11. “And she’s really done everything that she can. She takes care of her kids. They always come first. She makes a lot of sacrifices, I know she does.”
Recently, the GoFundMe campaign for Stewart surpassed its goal of US$5,500, raising a current total of US$5,630.
“Oh my God, you’ve all changed my life,” said Stewart in response to the teacher’s fund raising efforts. “I really, really appreciate everything that you guys are doing for me.”
