Cannon third-grader donates birthday gifts to animal shelter
by Staff Writer
CONCORD – Avery Watkins, a Cannon School student from Huntersville, recently donated all of her birthday gifts to the Cornelius Animal Shelter. Instead of asking for presents, the third-grader received several kinds of pet food, treats and essential items needed by the shelter to care for animals.
Avery said the best part of her day was when she got to play with the shelter’s animals for as long as she wanted.
