BELGRADE (AP) — A Belgrade girl has donated part of her Christmas money to help pay other students’ school lunch debts.

Julie Foret donated $80 to Ridge View Elementary School to pay off students’ lunch debts.

Julie was inspired after overhearing her neighbor Shawnna McLaughlin say she wanted to donate money to help alleviate school’s lunch debt.

Julie says she decided to donate because she already has so many toys.

Together, Julie and McLaughlin donated $120.

Julie hopes that by help with families’ lunch debt they will have extra money to spend on Christmas gifts for their kids.

Julie’s mother, Elizabeth Scott, describes her daughter as a selfless person who is always considering the needs of others.
