Teacher gets unexpected gift from a Secret Santa

#eastidahonews #secretsanta #christmas

The EastIdahoNews.com team is busy helping a local Secret Santa give $1 million to deserving people in eastern Idaho this holiday season. Every day over the past two months, we have posted videos of the recipients being surprised with these life-changing gifts.

As we wind down the year, today we are surprising Sarah. She teaches middle school English in Rigby.

Her family is very humble and doesn’t ask for anything. They serve at the local soup kitchen once a month and bless the lives of others.

Sarah’s family has had some extra burdens placed on them that have made their financial situation even more difficult. They were recently informed the main water line into their house had sprung a leak. The insurance company agreed to pay for the fix but they would not pay for the

The bill had to be fronted by Sarah and her family. Sarah needed to take out a loan for $5,000 to cover the excavation cost.

Secret Santa asked the East Idaho News elves to visit Sarah and deliver a Christmas gift. Watch the surprise in the video player above!

Perhaps she could have informed the viewers of the name of the Insurance Company who are being so helpful in paying for the fixing of the water line except for the cost to access the line,

I'm sad Secret Santa almost over for the year. BUMMER! Only reason I watch EIN is for feel good Friday and Secret Santa.

Pay off the loan, ❤️ 😍 💖 God's blessings 🙌 🙏

Hope they can get that break fixed soon so they can have water!! I have a friend who had a main break right after she listed her house on the market. It cost $30,000 to fix it!!!

She was so sweet! Knowing they were there because of her difficulties, says there are others more deserving! What a wonderful human being! What a blessing it is that she chose to teach and that she will influence future generations with her spirit! I have loved watching these segments and will miss them until next year!

Great job Secret Santa

I have been watching every Secret Santa videos and every Feel Good Friday for two years. I enjoyed watching the act of kindness Nate and his crew were doing to make this world a better! I am a person who shows my act of kindness and because of them, I enjoyed doing my part of doing good deeds to creating a meaningful life. Keep doing what you've been doing! Looking forward to watch more good deeds from you guys next year!

I look forward to watching this every year I'm going to be disappointed when they stop airing this back to old episodes again I guess🤣🤣🤣

OhSuzanna December 30, 2022 - 3:52 pm

She’s adorable. What a sweet soul. ❤️❤️❤️

My husband works for an excavating company and they're really expensive. They usually do work for huge oil terminals. A job like this one would be way higher than 5k because, NJ, but this Secret Santa gift is a lot bigger than you might think.
When Hurricane Irene knocked down our house we had to have everything re-done but we were blessed because the community came together and had a benefit to raise money (Dave Sabo from Skid Row played and auctioned off one of his guitars). The excavating company donated all the labor and did it for free. I'm just saying this because Secret Santas come in all shapes and sizes. God Bless this Secret Santa, there's a special place in Heaven for him 💖

She deserves more. Teachers mold all of our minds. God Bless her, Secret Santa, Nate & The Crew. Have a great New Year

Jacqui Coder December 30, 2022 - 4:13 pm

Wow, Secret Santa just keeps on giving! And this gift was so deserved in spite of her saying others were more needy. Thank you, Secret Santa and EIN for continuing to brighten my day.

María Emilia Negrón December 30, 2022 - 4:14 pm

I am going to miss this you guys 😢

Maybe a little off-topic, but what's wrong with her insurance company that they'll pay for repairs to a water line buried underground, but they won't pay to unbury it? I'd be going 100% "Karen" on that insurance company until they paid for the WHOLE repair bill, excavation included!

Shaindy Stern December 30, 2022 - 4:19 pm

I'm so happy for her

CHRYSTEL W December 30, 2022 - 4:37 pm

We have charitable organizations and people here that do good work throughout the year, some
I am a part of but somehow need a Secret Santa type generosity in our country, as life is getting so expensive and harder to control bills etc so many deserving people just need a hand to cope, especially this Christmas. Come to the Caribbean 🙂 lol anyway, alll the people that received this year deserved the help, God bless you Secret Santa. I pray that your charity never ends and inspires others to do the same for generations to come, btw, i cry for all the episodes lol

"There are so many more deserving family than me"
What a beautiful selfless soul. She must be protected at all cost, y'all.

That is exactly why she deserves the help and deserves this surprise because she thought someone else was more deserving of it .. I get so happy when it's people like her that get the surprise .. Happy Holidays..

Here in Horry County in South Carolina I pay a Service Line Maintenance Fee of $2.55 a month which covers everything from the meter to the house shut-off valve.
That covers any and all repairs in case of a leak or failure. I pay nothing for the repairs.
The water meter is at the main line next to the road at the utility easement.

Love you guys. Secret Santa, thank you so very much for all you've done for so many people. May Almighty God bless and keep you and yours!

BB Steele December 31, 2022 - 4:19 am

Never stop a blessing. It's happening because you are well deserved. These clips get me through the difficult holiday season. Recently losing my parents & living through the firsts without them has been a challenge. These videos give me a little hope. 😍

Most high earners have a life that is about a bit more than just salaries…. Leaving all family and friends behind just to grow your money through profitable investment is knowledge🍵

Baalah December 31, 2022 - 8:38 am

Sara his full of gratitude and grace 😇

I would be the most emotional person they have ever seen if they came to my door.

Carroll Prescott December 31, 2022 - 4:29 pm

When someone says there are more deserving people to help, you know you've picked the right one to help!
