Two eleven year old hometown girls founded their own charity.
Lauren Dratch and Caroline Sullivan successfully launched Pretzels for Presents. The 6th grade Trottier students sold gourmet pretzels to raise money for a worthy cause.
Proceeds were used to buy presents for Children’s Hospital patients who are stuck in the hospital through the holidays.
Yesterday, Caroline’s mother shared:
The response was overwhelming and today we delivered a full carload of gifts to Children’s. It was a sweet experience for the girls. They did it all on their own and they raised quite a bit of money in about a week’s time.
Congratulations! That’s some generous girl power!
