Madison Kerstetter, a First Grade G.C. Hartman Elementary student,  was featured in Tuesday's edition of the Shamokin News-Item. Madison was recognized for her efforts in collecting $600 in toys which were donated to the Susquehanna Valley chapter of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.  Dean Beaver, the chapter's coordinator, said he's never heard of a girl so young taking on a fundraising effort for the local chapter. Great job Madison!  You have warmed the hearts of many adults in the Susquehanna Valley and you have brightened the holidays for many children too! Click here to read the News-Item article.
