8-Year Old Kingwood Student Raises Donations for Hunterdon County Family Success Center

Eight-year old Brooklyn Liskowacki recently heard about the Hunterdon County Family Success Center (FSC) from the Kingwood School Nurse.  Although Brooklyn has never visited the FSC, something resonated with her after hearing about what the FSC does for the families it serves.

 

Unfortunately, some of these families are homeless.  Brooklyn decided to coordinate a donation drive for these children who currently have no home as part of her Gifted and Talented Project.  She drafted a letter which was distributed to all the classes at Kingwood School.  The donations were collected, with the FSC having no knowledge that this was being done until we received a call from Brooklyn to tell us that she had bags of toys, games, hats, scarves, and gloves.

 

On behalf of all the staff and families at the Family Success Center, we thank you Brooklyn for caring!  One person can make a difference!
