Lucianna did something a little different to celebrate her 11th birthday. Instead of making a list of all the awesome new things she would like, she thought of others. Lucy had a simple request for her birthday, help Crisis Nursery. Lucy asked her friends to bring toys and donations that she could give to Crisis Nursery to help the children who are utilizing their services. On the day of her birthday party, her friends helped her out, donating toys and more to give to the Crisis Nursery. Lucy, with her mother, brought the donated gifts to Crisis Nursery and generously enriched the lives of the children that will stay there. So today we honor Lucianna Burke for doing the right thing!
Thanks to her generosity and thoughtfulness, other children are benefiting. Mrs. Carolyn Kramkowski, Lucy’s teacher, who nominated her, stated “Lucy was so kind! When Lucy and her mother visited the Crisis Nursery with the donation, she was told when she turns 16 she can volunteer there, which made her very excited!” We are excited for you too Lucy; congratulations!
