When it comes to birthday parties, most second graders have a long list of the presents they’d like to get on their special day. Addison Pospisil, daughter of Jared and Sarah Pospisil, is not your typical second grader. Last month, in anticipation of her eighth birthday, Addison had a special request for the guests that would attend her party. Rather than bring her a gift, Addison asked her friends to consider donating the money they would normally spend on a present to the residents at La Porte City Specialty Care.
Following her birthday on November 15, Addison’s eighth birthday wish became a reality, and thanks to the generosity of these young ladies, the holiday season will be a little brighter for those who reside at the local nursing home.
Last week during a scheduled second grade visit at “The Lodge,” the staff and residents took a moment to recognize and thank Addison and her friends for their thoughtfulness, noting their donations will be used for gifts and musical entertainment for the residents.
