Maggie is a 12 year old with a heart bigger than you can imagine. Maggie grows flowers in her garden and sells them in $1 bouquets and buys Christmas gifts and needs for those less fortunate. Last year she supplied a food pantry with an evening of gift getting for their children. That evening included 80 gifts. A week later she delivered 75 gifts to a local group that helps with getting people back on their feet. She also purchased 20 gifts and a need for 20 boys in a youth home. And again she took care of a family of 6 whose father had cancer with everything on their Christmas list and more. Maggie also supplied 30 gifts to a nursing home. For a child to work hard all year long and then just keep giving instead of herself and then to give all she makes is extraordinary. Maggie is also a Hudsonville ice cream fan. Hot days working in the garden are a great time to be enjoying a cold Hudsonville treat.
