Susan Kies of Channahon said her son Caleb (pictured above), an eighth-grader at Channahon Junior High School, was very surprised to see a bag for him on their porch.
But it really "threw him" when a second, and then a third, showed up at different times, Kies said.
Kies gladly adopted three students in return.
“I thought it sounded like a lot of fun for the kids missing all their activities at the end of the year,” Kies said. “It was just something to make them feel special.”
