Eight year-old Hopper Kendregan.

Prince Rupert youth helps others on her birthday

While many 8 year-olds may be hoping for the newest gadgets for their birthday, Prince Rupert's Hopper Kendregan was wanting to help others.

While many eight year-olds may be hoping for the newest gadgets or toys for their birthday, Prince Rupert’s Hopper Kendregan was wanting to help others.

For her eighth birthday, Hopper asked her friends not to bring presents but to instead bring money that could be donated to the Acropolis Manor. This week she donated the $125 that was raised on her birthday last month.

“I have too much stuff, I think, so I started to think about what else I could do,” said Hopper, who made a donation to the Prince Rupert SPCA in lieu of presents for her last birthday.

“I have so many friends and some family here at Acropolis Manor, so I thought I should do a donation for the people who live here.”

Before making the donation, Hopper could be seen drumming along with the residents of the Manor as part of a drum circle hosted by Charles Justice for those who live there.
