Milich’s story was featured on news outlets across the country and little did she know, a New York man named Ben Adam was watching.
Adam reached out to Milich on social media and asked if she needed help purchasing school supplies for her classroom.
“I’m thinking, ‘This is crazy. This is a total stranger from New York,'” Milich recalled. “When school started, I started getting Amazon packages. I thought it was a one-time thing.”
Adam continued to send Milich classroom supplies well into the second semester of school. She received colored paper, books, paints, paintbrushes, snacks for the kids and more.
