Hudson girl celebrates birthday with donation to Hudson Food Pantry
It was Christmas in July at the Hudson Food Pantry last month, when Hudson residents Katie Joslyn, 8 and her sister, Alex, 5, brought $250 worth of cash, food and toy donations to the Houghton Street site.
Katie, who has a Christmas Day birthday, celebrates her birthday in mid-summer and this year decided to ask for donations to the pantry in lieu of gifts from friends at her party. Guests brought cash, many toys and boxed food and toiletries to celebrate with her. Katie also established a lemonade stand in her front yard last month, selling cupcakes, cookies and lemonade to benefit the pantry.
