For the second year in a row, Anastasia Jordan chose to help homeless animals to celebrate her birthday. On Feb. 4, she donated a vehicle-full of animal-related items to the Humane Society of Washington County.

The party was held at The Improved Order of Red Men Tribe 84 in Williamsport and most of her fellow third-grade schoolmates came to the party. 

The theme of the party was football teams and everyone in attendance donned their favorite team’s jersey. 

The Red Men Riders donated a $100 gift card from PetSmart to the shelter in Anastasia’s honor.

“We think there is easily 600 pounds of food, beds and blankets in that vehicle,” said Sherry Chaney, Anastasia’s grandmother. “We are so proud of her. She is so caring and is such a smart young lady.”
Anastasia is on the distinguished honor roll at Williamsport Elementary School.
She is in the magnet program class taught by Jesse Orth.
