Jersey Proud: Third-grade student in Linden raises money for animal shelter
The generosity from a third-grade student in Linden just keeps growing.
Amelia Hanger adopted her two cats, Michelle and Michael, from the Friends of Linden Animal Shelter. For the last few years, she's been running a fundraiser in conjunction with Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
This year, Hanger singlehandedly raised $2,000. Due to her efforts, the shelter was given another $1,900 during the week of Hanger's project.
The money was used to buy pet food and supplies for the shelter.
