For her ninth birthday this year, Morgan Bartkowski wanted a bunch of presents and money.
But they weren’t for her. Instead, she asked for donations and supplies for the Waterford-East Lyme Animal shelter. Overall, she raised $261 in donations for a new animal shelter, and gave bags of food and other supplies to Animal Control Officer Robert Yuchniuk.
Bartkowski gave the supplies to Yuchniuk with her dog, Pumpkin. The Bartkowski family recently adopted Pumpkin from the animal shelter.
