Title
Allied Veterans Help Replace Stolen School Electronics

Discussion

Allied Veterans of the World Inc. Aff. 59 donated $7,000 to help replace computer equipment stolen from Palm Bay Elementary School.

Burglars broke into the school sometime between Friday, January 14 evening and Tuesday, January 18 morning and stole laptop computers valued at over $6,900 as well as $150 in cash and gift cards that was being collected for an upcoming field trip.  The funds for the field trip were replaced through a donation from the Brevard Federation of Teachers.

Palm Bay Elementary School's principal, Lori Migliore said the school was "overwhelmed by this act of kindness" and the organization's generosity because the stolen equipment is vital to the curriculum.
