Eleven-year-old Camryn Rose S., from Madison, Connecticut and friends hosted an AWESOME almost-sleepover on October 22nd.
Everyone who came to Camryn and friends’ almost-sleepover was asked to bring pet supplies to help the Dan Cosgove Animal Shelter in Branford, Connecticut, and to donate $5. Half of the money collected went to Don’s Hat Rack to buy hats for children undergoing chemotherapy and other half of the money went to the North Madison Volunteer Fire Department. At the event, the friends put together fleece blankets for the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic in Guilford, collected bottles and cans to raise money for UCan2′s LifeStraw project (which was started by 10-year-old Brett Leckey of Madison), made cards for seniors at the Masonic Home in Wallingford and for soldiers through Operation Gratitude, and painted ornaments for patients at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
“We had an amazing night!!” said Camryn’s mom, Jennifer. “80 people, over $400.00 collected for charity plus tons and tons of recyclable cans/bottles, ornaments made for Smilow Cancer Center, Fleece Blankets made for Yale Pediatrics hematology/oncology, cookie mixes made for Madison Senior Center and an uncountable supply of goods for Dan Cosgrove’s Animal Shelter!!!! The girls did a fantastic job!!! GO USCSNow girls!”
