Amanda Ng, an honor roll sixth grader at Crestwood Middle School, was recently given an athlete medal for volleyball and was selected as the Kohl’s Kid Care local winner. She will also be representing Model 4 Miracles again this year as Miss Charity.
Kohl’s supports children who help their communities, and Cristina Limbo of Snip Its in Wellington nominated Amanda for her generous community service work. Amanda, who is 12 years old, has been visiting the Royal Manor Nursing home each December since age 6. Each year, she brings six friends and hundreds of Beanie Babies to give to the residents, and the children sit and talk to the residents. Amanda also helps her brother with a backpack drive for Pleasant City Elementary School, which she will now take over as her brother leaves for college.
Amanda has also been an active participant of Model 4 Miracles, which raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. In the three years that she has participated, Amanda has raised more than $7,000. The luncheon starts with volunteers who donate $100 to model the runway clothing provided, followed by a charity pageant. Luncheon seats are $30 ($50 for VIP seating). All proceeds go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. The luncheon this year raised more than $16,000.
If you would like to help Amanda with Model 4 Miracles, the backpack drive or donate Beanie Babies, contact her mother, Sandi Ng, at email@example.com.
