Boy Restores Power to School for Birthday

Monday, March 26, 2018
All Avery Huddleston of Buffalo, IL, wanted for his seventh birthday was to send school supplies to students in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria, but he ended up getting a lot more than that. Workers who were restoring power to hard hit areas of Puerto Rico volunteered to deliver Avery’s present.

In the process, they discovered that the school in Rio Grande was still almost entirely without power. The problem was traced back to a nearby damaged transformer that was easily fixed. Workers say if it wasn’t for Avery, the children at that school would still be learning in the dark.
