La Colombe Coffee CEO Todd Carmichael knows what it's like to grow up poor.
To grow up being on food stamps.
To have to participate in school lunch programs that are often embarrassing for kids.
Which is why, when he found out that the Wyoming Valley West School District had sent out letters to shame parents into paying their delinquent school lunch bills with threats of sending their children to foster care, he stepped up and offered to pay the $22,000 to pay off all of the debt.
And the school district refused.
BUT some days, the good guy wins....and the officials bowed to a huge public backlash and accepted his donation.
And today, that good guy's name is Todd Carmichael.
