Local 9-Year Old Donates Birthday Gifts to Goodfellows

Emma-Lynn Wilbur just celebrated her 9th birthday.   Emma-Lynn made a special request to her family and friends not to give her gifts for her birthday, but instead purchase gifts to donate to Chatham Goodfellows for the 2017 “No Child Without a Christmas” campaign.  In the photograph Emma-Lynn poses with the gifts she received for her birthday and turned over to Chatham Goodfellows President Tim Haskell.
