New Books From 13-year old Birthday Girl

    Birthdays are always a special occasion for children, especially when it is the day that marks the first of their teenage years. For Emily Friedman, turning thirteen not only marked her first sign as a teen but also her celebration of becoming a woman, her bat mitzvah. With this monumental stepping stone in her life, Emily wanted to give back to her community during her first days as a young adult. Emily decided that instead of receiving gifts, she will help raise money to purchase books for the children of HSP. With the help of her two younger sisters, Emily was able to host a bake sale to all of her friends and family to raise the money.

     Emily was kind enough to purchase two boxes of books from the Scholastic Warehouse and donate them to our Children Birthday Project. This marks one of the lovely representations of what the people in Dupage and Kane counties do for our organization.
