Anonymous check helps daycare stay open

ST. LOUIS - An anonymous donor living more than 600 miles from St. Louis is the reason a local daycare for disabled and foster children will be able to keep its doors open.

A check came in the mail for $20,000, enough to get Nancy Voss, her staff, and the children who need her and the school, through the year.

Nancy said she got a call from a man who wouldn't identify himself. The area code told her he was from the Dallas area. He said he'd seen the story on his local news station.

The man asked Nancy a lot of questions about the school, and the need. He told her he wanted to send her a check anonymously in memory of his wife, because she would have loved the mission of the school.

Nancy Voss said she's already talking to corporate sponsors and writing other grants to keep the school open after the $20,000 runs out. That money will help keep the lights on, pay the staff, and buy supplies. The school has already established a GoFundMe account.
