NAME: Megan Halverson

GRADE: 1st Grade

SCHOOL: Wolf's Crossing Elementary

WHAT MAKES HER A KID WHO CARES: Megan has one of the biggest hearts I know, especially for only being 6. 

Last summer when we started talking about school shopping, she asked how the kids that don't have money get school supplies.  I told her that people donate supplies for them. 

After her older cousin got a snow cone machine from Granny and Papa to take to college, she asked for one from them also.  She said she wanted one so she should have a snow cone stand to buy school supplies to donate to kids in need, so they bought her one. 

She used money she already had earned to purchase cups, spoons, straws, syrup and ice.  She had a very successful Snow Cones for Supplies that raised just over $220.  She donated some supplies to a local church in Montgomery and the rest to Mutual Ground. 

I am very proud that she had come up with idea on her own.  She is going to have another Snow Cone for Supplies this summer.
