The money he makes from his evening shift doesn't go to him but rather to pupils who come from low-income families. In early 2021, it was reported by the Post and Courier that the North Charleston High School got some good news.

Walmart donated a whopping $50 000 (R766 795) and a GoFundMe page for the school had raised a massive $190 000 (R2 913 821). However, the financial assistance the school is constantly receiving has not stopped Principal Darby from going the extra mile to work at Walmart.
