ASHTON - Llewellyn Elementary School Principal Joe Galati receives a check for the Llewellyn Foundation from Scott McDonald, right, of Local Farmers Delivery.Llewellyn Elementary School Principal Joe Galati got a surprise delivery from with Scott McDonald of “Local Farmers Delivery” on April 25 – but it wasn’t milk or eggs.

“Scott approached us with the idea of a fundraiser,” Galati said. “By letting our families know they could have fresh Alpenrose milk, Franz Bread, and coffee, delivered to their homes, the school would benefit if neighbors signed up.”

More than a dozen did so.

Galati said of the subsequent check, “Today we’re given this special gift that will go toward our educational foundation. I say thank you very kindly, for what has been given to us!”
