Ellen sat down with Akbar Cook, Principal of West Side High School in Newark, New Jersey. Cook noticed at-risk students being bullied for dirty clothes, so he worked hard to install washing machines and dryers so the kids could do laundry. After hearing his story, Ellen teamed up with her friends at Cheerios to help Principal Cook continue to do good and support his “babies” at school. Learn more at EllenTube.com/cheerios
