Local 6 Year Old Raises Money and Awareness For Children in Need
As the holidays approach, there are many families that can’t afford presents for their children. Additionally, there are many children that have been abandoned, neglected, or abused and placed in the foster care system in Orange County. But, one act of kindness can change these children’s futures and give them a bright and magical Christmas morning! And, that’s why a 6-year old boy has made it his mission to make sure these children get the day they deserve by selling homemade holiday cookie jars to raise money for those less fortunate. Let’s take a look at what Carter has to say!
