Julia Almeida from North Smithfield Foregoes Birthday Presents and Collects $500 for Homeless Animals at the North Smithfield Animal Shelter
To celebrate her sixth birthday, Julia Almeida, decided that she wanted to help homeless animals. She asked friends and family to donate money to the homeless animals at the North Smithfield Animal Shelter in lieu of receiving birthday gifts for herself. Through the generosity of her family and friends, Julia received $500 in donations which she presented to the staff at the North Smithfield Animal Shelter along with food supplies for cats, litter, and dog/cat toys. During her visit at the shelter, Julia enjoyed the company of several little kittens, who have now been adopted into loving homes.
