On Nov. 23, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman hand-delivered a check for $7,491.27 from Blanket Coverage, The Richard Sherman Family Foundation, to Cabrillo Middle School Principal Stan Garber. This generous donation will eliminate the school’s current outstanding meal debt.
“We have found that eliminating student lunch debt is one way to help assist students and their families in relieving some of the stress that comes with attending school on a daily basis,” said a letter from the foundation to our Nutrition Services department.
The letter went on to say, “The last thing any child should have to worry about is being able to afford eating breakfast and lunch at school; we aim to do our part in eliminating that obstacle.”
The District said it is thankful to the Richard Sherman Family Foundation for this kind donation. It means that many Cabrillo families will have less debt over the holiday season.
