Neighbors: Young neighbor to raise money for animals

Hello neighbor.

One of our younger neighbors, 11-year-old Miracle Leyro, is organizing a walk through the downtown Greenfield area this Saturday with a group of her friends. The youngsters plan to raise money for Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society.

Miracle’s mother Diana Nunez told me that Miracle plans to walk along Main and Federal streets, as well as some of the side streets, for six hours. They plan to make a few stops at Miracle’s home on Chapman Street where her mom will be selling lemonade for the cause.

So, if you happen to be on Chapman Street Saturday and see a lemonade stand or pass a handful of 11-year-olds holding signs for Dakin, stop and chat, donate or buy yourself a cool, refreshing lemonade — it’s for a great cause and might just help encourage more of our youth to do like Miracle and her friends.

Diana said Miracle plans to donate all of the money she has earned.

“She does this all the time,” said Diana. “She donates to all sorts of causes, but she’s really into animals. She wants to be a veterinarian.”

I will contact her next week and let you all know how she and her friends did on Saturday.

Good luck Miracle!
