When Ava Capron of Monticello turned 10 years old on April 6, she had a different idea for her birthday party. Instead of having her friends bring her birthday present, Capron asked them to bring food items to donate to the Monticello Food Pantry.
“I thought I had enough stuff at home and didn’t need any more toys,” said Capron. “I wanted to give back to the community.”
Capron said she knows there are people out there who don’t have enough food to eat. Plus, the Caprons have donated to the food pantry in the past.
