Birthday donations

For her 8th birthday, Charlotte asked her friends to bring donations to help the pets at the shelter instead of birthday gifts.  Charlotte and her sister, Emily, came by the shelter to drop off the donations and visit with the animals.  The girls live in Walpole and we think their parents must be awfully proud of them for being so generous.
