Leah, an Ithaca 3rd grader, drew pictures and sold them at the Ithaca School Fair. Her goal was to donate all of her funds to the PTSO. This young lady saw our district nurse trying to raise money to replace the cost of the new AED and to purchase other medical supplies. She resided $54 and decided to split her donation. She donated $10 to the Ithaca PTSO and $45 to the District Nurse AED fund! Thank you so much Leah! Way to be a Bulldog!!
