Faith Powell, 11, of Highland decided for her birthday she would like to give to others. To raise money, she collected and sold old shoes, and then accepted gifts from others to supplement the toy donation to Children’s Fund, which supports foster children. Last Christmas, she went to Walmart with her money and bought baskets of toys and donated them to Children’s Fund in San Bernardino. On Tuesday, Jan. 26, Walmart chipped in $3,000 to Children’s Fund in Faith’s name to help the cause.
Faith’s mother, Tracey Powell joined Faith and Children’s Fund President and CEO Stacy Iverson in accepting the check from Walmart Store Manager Sandra Nuterangelo at the Highland Avenue Walmart in San Bernardino. Faith will be honored for her efforts at the annual Heart Awards presented by The Unforgettables on Feb. 12 at the Fox Theater in Redlands.
