I am a Grade One teacher, who has witnessed the benefits that Noelle’s gift brings to children in our community. Everyone of my students, whom were unable to purchase their out grown “indoor/gym” shoes, received a pair of good quality sneakers for the last part of the school year and their little feet will be better protected throughout the summer. On behalf of them, I humbly thank you. Additionally, the gift of paying for swim times at the community pools, so that children can have free swim times is fantastic. My students swim at Tecumseh pool, and it is a wonderful experience to see their joy in the pool and during the summer months it gives them a safe, healthy living and fun place to visit. All the students in area know how to swim, to some degree, because of the support for the pool (Mrs. Norma Cox) and now, Noelle’s Gift, that makes usage of the pool, barrier free. Again, thank you.
