Continuing the tradition from previous years, Abt donated a refrigerator box to St. John Brebeuf School in Niles.

The third graders at St. John use the box to paint a mural on. This year the kids based the mural on a book they read in class, The Boxcar Children, by Gertrude Chandler Warner.

The story is about four orphaned children, living in a boxcar and hiding from their grandfather, who use an old refrigerator box to draw a beautiful picture on. The kids learn that their grandfather really loves them and takes care of them when he finds them.

Abt is proud to help!
