Donation Stuns Grand Rapids School

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Lincoln School is reeling over a jaw-dropping donation given by a Caledonia couple who their entire adult lives mourned a special-needs daughter who died in 1956 at the age of 12, and never got the chance to go to school herself.
"I opened up this envelope, and a check for $250,000 fell out on my desk," said Steve Kadau, principal at Lincoln, where some 80 staff members work with nearly 180 moderately to severely cognitively impaired students.
Since then, another check has surfaced from the same deceased couple, for $200,000. And it's only a matter of time before a third check is issued, for about $30,000, bringing the total to upwards of $480,000.
