SHOUT OUT to the community for donating to The Carousel Center!

Thank you to our GOLD STAR AWARD recipient, Hunter Ferrell. This amazing young man just turned 7 years old and in lieu of birthday gifts (for the second year in a row!!) Hunter asked his friends to bring donations for The Carousel Center. Thanks to Hunter’s mom, Shelley, for raising such a philanthropic young man. We need many, many more generous friends like Hunter in our community.
