Anna Celebrates Her Birthday with Generosity

Anna Hornick of Poplar Grove turned 11 this week. For her birthday party, she asked her guests to bring a pair of shoes to be donated to the Rockford Rescue Mission Thrift Store. On Tuesday, Anna came to the store with her mother and grandmother to deliver two paper grocery bags full of kids’ sized shoes and boots. Store Manager David Rufh gave them a tour of the store to show them what happens with their donations.

Thanks, Anna, for spreading sunshine to the Thrift Store and for your generosity. Happy Birthday!
