Pay It Forward: Brown Station Elementary School

About a month ago, a terrifying explosion occurred at an apartment complex in Gaithersburg, MD, leaving one person dead and dozens of families having to start their lives over. Across the street is Brown Station Elementary School, where students and staff jumped into action to help during this horrific tragedy.

The school has been receiving donations and giving them to those who lost everything in the explosion. They are now collecting gift cards so families can purchase what they need. We wanted to show our appreciation to the staff and students at Brown Station Elementary, so we took the time to Pay It Forward with Fox 5 DC. Easterns donated gift bags full of goodies as a token of gratitude for the work they have done in the community.
