Abby Geng, an 8th grader at Huntington Middle School, recently earned some extra money teaching a virtual cooking class. Abby and her parents consulted on the matter and agreed the funds would best be used “for something special.”
The result — a $200 donation to the San Marino Police Department, to the pleasant surprise of San Marino Police Chief John Incontro.
