Addison, a kindergartener at Hugh Mercer Elementary is celebrating her birthday by holding a food and funds drive to feed other hungry children. She got the idea from a commercial that talked about a girl who collected shoes for a village. Ever since she saw it, she has been asking to “help people” for her birthday because “she has a lot of stuff and some people have none.”
Addison wants to help local kids who don’t have enough food instead of gifts for her birthday. Addison is asking everyone to make a donation to benefit children through the FAFB Food-4-Kidz Weekend Feeding Program. According to Addison, we need to “tell people who will tell people who will tell more people so everyone can help.”
Happy Birthday to Addison and all of the children you will help through your wonderful example.
