Shining Child- Trinity Columbel

Trinity Columbel is a 9-year-old girl from our community who decided to do something extra special on her 9th birthday, this year.

She decided for her birthday this year to have her friends and family give her donations so she can donate those items to a local animal shelter. Trinity has a huge heart and we want to recognize her efforts to make a difference in our community along with her parents. Her desire to help the Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton has made her our Shining Child of the month.

Great job, Trinity!
