TIPP CITY – Representatives from the Tipp City American Legion Post #586 presented donations to 3 schools in Miami County.
Each year, the Tipp City American Legion has made donations to organizations that benefit veterans and their families, as well as projects that benefit the community. However, it seems that something got lost in translation with the many donation requests the Legion receives each year.
The first school to receive a confusing donation was Nevin Coppock Elementary in Tipp, which received a crate of 5,000 condoms delivered to their doorstep yesterday afternoon.
“I thought it was a nice gesture, but I’m not really sure what we’re supposed to do with all these.” said principal Grayston Ginning “I’m sure they just got confused, those guys are pretty old, if not well intentioned”
Next on the list was Washington Primary in Piqua, which found themselves in quite a shock when they found a truckload of recorders scattered across the parent drop-off zone. Washington music teacher Bryant Gombull noted he had put in a request for 50 of the woodwind instruments to provide for underprivileged students.
“I just don’t understand why they weren’t in a box. How were they even transported here? And where am I supposed to put all these?” said the ungrateful music teacher.
Finally, students at Miami East High were in for quite a treat when they arrived at school Friday morning. Post 586 members had stuffed a fresh box of whip-its in every locker at the school. Our reporters were unable to establish how Legion members were able to break into the high school, nor were they able to get an explanation as to how they got every locker open and filled before sunrise. Despite the peculiarity of the donation, no one on the scene had anything bad to say about the mix-up.
Unfortunately, one of our reporters, Chip Gernee, ended up relapsing on whip-its at the scene, so we were unable to get any other details on the incident. But as soon as Chip is up from his nitrous-induced coma, we’ll be sure to update this article with more details on the donation confusion.
