A woman who saw children Monday with no mittens bought 300 pairs of gloves and donated them Tuesday to Stanley Elementary School in Tacoma.
Serena Smith told The Tacoma News Tribune she chose the school at the recommendation of grocery store bagger. Eighty percent of the students there meet federal poverty guidelines for free or reduced meals.
The principal of the school on 17th Street, Cindy Tone-Johnson, called it the "Miracle on 17th Street."
The 54-year-old Smith has two grown sons and works at the Frank Tobey Jones retirement community where co-workers helped her expenses.
