Skye Zagorski, 11, of Clifton Park recently won a Kohl's Cares scholarship for her fundraising.
continued It was with their earnings that Reach for the Skye was able to donate gifts to the kids at The Children’s Hospital.
“I figured, why not give it to somebody who needed it more?” Zagorski said. “They weren’t going to be home for the holidays to open gifts under the tree.”
Zagorski’s actions don’t surprise her mother Layne Zagorski.
“She’s always doing things for other people. …She’s just that kind of kid,” she said.
Rich Zagorski, Sky’s father, said that he’s very proud of Skye and that she has a good social conscience for somebody her age.
He added that Skye’s a gifted photographer and a museum buff, so much so that she writes about museums on museums411.com, a site dedicated to the museums and historical sites in New York.
At the moment, Skye intends to use her Kohl’s scholarship toward an education in photography.
Kohl’s will award more than $420,000 in scholarships and prizes this year through the program.
