Valerie Castile Makes Student Lunch Debt Donation

Philando Castile’s mom is making her mark. Valerie Castile recently presented a check to Robbinsdale Cooper High School in New Hope, Minn. where her late son worked as a cafeteria supervisor.

The check was for $8,000 and Ms. Valerie presented it to clear lunch debts for seniors preparing to graduate.

According to Ms. Valerie, paying unpaid lunch bills for students was something Philando did often.

“This is something that Philando held near and dear to his heart,” Valerie Castile said reports CBS Minnesota.

“He’d pay for children’s lunch meals out of his own pocket instead of letting a child go hungry that day he would pay for it himself,” she said.

The check came from the Philando Castile Relief Foundation, set up after Philando was gunned down by a police officer in 2016. The foundation has a mission to help victims of gun violence and police violence.
Ms. Valerie and the foundation previously donated $10,000 to the school.

God bless Ms. Valerie!
