It's been an extremely challenging school year for teachers, no doubt about it.
It's Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3-7), and Food Town, a long-time Uptown business located at Hazel and Montrose, took it upon itself to do something nice for the teachers of nearby Uplift Community High School. As Uplift said on Twitter:
Thanks, Food Town, and thanks, teachers, for meeting the challenges of a very unique year in (and out of) the classroom.
"Local family-owned store (Food Town Uptown) supported us by donating a gift card to every teacher and staff member in the building! We are beyond grateful
