Donation to cancer charities on Christmas list

East Lyme 10-year-old includes donations for cancer charities to her Christmas List

By ELLEN SWERCEWSKI

Ten-year-old Kelsey Haynes from East Lyme wanted to do something special at Christmas, so she asked for donations to cancer charities.

As a result, she received $150. She donated $75 to the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation and $75 to the American Cancer Society.

Her message to our message board was, “Hi! I am 10 years old and for Christmas one of the things I asked for is money to donate to cancer charities. So, I would like to give you a donation.”

Kelsey met with Kate Davis, Director of Operations to present Kate with her donation.

Thank you, Kelsey for your thoughtfulness and your donation.
