Unsung Heroes #110

A couple of weeks ago, “06880” put out a call. Earthplace had lost its longtime supplier of food. They needed $14,000 to feed their raptors.

Readers responded immediately. But 2 young people went waaaaay beyond the call of duty.

Sienna DeSantis organized a lemonade stand on the hottest Sunday of the year. She raised $250.

Rising Staples High School senior Emma Borys works in the Earthplace Animal Hall. She donated her salary from 2 holidays — July 4th, and this coming Labor Day — to the campaign.

The ravens, owls, hawks and eagles thank you!

    Well done Sienna and Emma! I have great hope for the future with compassionate and giving young women like these two. While I do not know Sienna and her family who clearly must be wonderful, I do know Emma’s family and can say the apple does not fall far from the tree! 👏
