Kate Olson, Donates to Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter

Kate Olson, daughter of Dr. Matt and Jenni Olson, had been saving up for a horse, but she decided that she would take her money and donate it to the Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter. We are so grateful to all of our supporters and so proud of all the young people who have donated or who have offered to volunteer.
