11-Year Old Student Collects Toys for Hibiscus Children’s Cente
John Morgan, an 11-year-old student, has done it again! Last year, he collected an abundance of gifts for Christmas for the Tilton Family Children’s Shelter. He wrote a letter to his family and friends and the response was overwhelming. Well, this year he did the same thing and added a stand in his neighborhood that received a great response, as well! Imagine the excitement on the children’s faces when they awoke on Christmas morning to packages filled with wonderful toys and games that John worked so hard to collect. This very special young man has made a great impact on children who may have never experienced a joyful holiday or received presents under the Christmas tree. What a priceless gift he has given the Hibiscus children!
Patrice, John’s mom, describes this incredible young man as a social kid who loves sports and always roots for the underdog. John is an altar server at church and always seeks ways to lend a helping hand. He volunteers his time at Farm Dog Rescue either by helping to set up at events, playing with the puppies, or bagging up food for monthly donations. He put together 180 bags of dog food for Feed Martin County to support the families in need with dogs!
Hibiscus Children’s Center is grateful to John for being an exemplary role model for other youth and for making a difference in the lives of children in need. The Hibiscus Shelter provides safe haven for up to 36 children and critical services including medical, educational, literacy and mental health counseling. John is a true hero and friend to children and we are so proud of his accomplishments and his caring heart! If you would like more information about Hibiscus, please visit HibiscusChildrensCenter.org.
