"This morning I paid off every kids past due lunch bill for all the elementary schools in the Ambridge School District" shared Kowalski on his facebook page.
Kowalski added to the facebook post "According to the Great Theologian Amiri King, if you do something nice, don’t be ashamed to share."
"I chose Ambridge since it’s my alumni (class of 1999) even though I don’t not live in the district anymore. I’ll never forget where I came from. I was one of those kids and I knew it could potentially help lots of families around the holidays."

The Ambridge School District released a Press Release on another donor #BeTHEGood #BridgerPride
At the Junior High, 90 students were helped, for a total of $500 in negative lunch balances, according to District Food Services Director Janet Gaffney. At the elementary schools, a total of 215 students were helped for a total of $796 in negative lunch balances. While the negative lunch balances have been paid off at the elementary and junior high schools, Gaffney noted that the Senior High School still carries a negative lunch balance of $1,320.38.
Gaffney said this is the first time in her 25 years as the food services director for the District that anyone has come forward to pay off lunch balances. “I am so moved and grateful to have been a part of this experience of having two of our parents come forward in this giving act of generosity; to see firsthand the spirit of giving is still alive and well in the AASD,” she said.
