Sweets from a kind heart for the SPCA

Megan Richdale held a bake sale to benefit the SPCA

The idea of having a simple lemonade stand for fun turned into much more for nine year old Megan Richdale. After consideration, she decided to turn it into a fundraising opportunity.

Richdale chose to donate the money to the SPCA. “It was easy for Megan to choose the SPCA as the lucky recipient, as it has been where all of her furry family members were chosen. She knows the importance of the organization,” said Megan’s mom, Kelly Legere.

The next step was an eight hour baking extravaganza resulting in dozens of cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon buns, Rice Krispie Squares, and bags of popcorn.

By days end, Megan and her two older sisters Allie and Kailin were ecstatic to have raised a whopping $276.80 from the many generous donations.

Megan will be donating all of the proceeds to the Trail SPCA towards their wish list items.

Legere said of Megan, “My sweet daughter learned some beautiful examples about being humble and kind today. What a great day!
