The Exeter-Milligan kindergarten girls received very special presents at school this year. A very generous lady named Rita made this possible. Her project is called Cassidy Clothes. Twenty two years ago her grandson was a baby and needed a liver transplant. A little girl named Cassidy passed away due to a congenital heart condition. Her family donated the liver that saved Rita’s grandson. To honor Cassidy, Rita has been donating dolls to hundreds of children. She not only buys the dolls, she and her friends make beautiful clothes for these dolls. This is the third year that EM has been on the list to receive these dolls. Rita’s act of kindness made the EM kindergarten girls smile.
