Full Heart Kids Carnival raises over $6,000

Eighth grade Charles Boehm Middle School student Casey Schaeffer, accompanied by her Full Heart Crew, held the Third Annual Full Heart Kids Carnival earlier this month in Chester Meadow on Lakeview Drive in Yardley.

Featuring an appearance by the Villanova Will D. Cat mascot, pony rides, a bounce house, video game truck, raffles, silent auction and more, carnival sponsorships and donations totaled $6,200, with over $ 4,300 benefiting three worthy causes:

  • A Soldier’s Hands, a 501(c)3 organization providing needed skin care products for troops deployed overseas, founded by Casey’s mentor, Trish Shallenberger
  • Full Heart Music Scholarship, an award Casey is initiating for the most improved senior high school orchestra student at Pennsbury High School
  • Joyce’s Voice for Cats Adoption, a 501(c)3 organization that raises funds to help pay for spay/neuter, provide vaccines, and necessary vetting in order to adopt out social felines into forever homes.
