Congratulations to Lyn Smith: the winner of the $200 gift certificate for her efforts during the coronavirus pandemic



Ms. Smith works at an Elementary Charter School as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) Instructor. With the school closure and the StayHomeMN Order due to the Coronovirus-19 pandemic; she goes to the school twice a week to provide child care for Essential Workers. She made her own and masks, and works extra online, making phone calls, or Zoom meeting with students and parents: often working into the night. She shared some food items through a local church with a family who had been laid off from work. This family included a husband, wife, and five children. From another distribution of food items, she shared with a grandmother who is raising 6 grandchildren ranging in ages 7 years to 6 months. She is also a help to her mother who is especially vulnerable having pre-existing conditions during this pandemic. Thank you Lyn for all that you do to help others. We hope that you enjoy your own $200. gift certificate.
