Eighth Grader Grants NMLC Wishes!

“Dear Friend,
IMG_6109“I would like to let you know about a wonderful cause that I am very passionate about.  It’s the National Marine Life Center.  The National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts’ mission is rehabilitating stranded sea turtles, seals, dolphins, porpoises, and small whales, and advancing scientific knowledge and education in marine wildlife health and conservation.  I have visited the center and was inspired by the work they do there.
“Have you ever heard of the stranded turtles on the news?  This center will nurse them back to health.  But they can’t do it alone.  The National Marine Life Center accepts all kinds of donations.  The complete list is on their website
“My family will be driving to the NMLC in Buzzards Bay on March 27 to bring our donations from the NMLC wish list.  If you would like to add anything of your own let us know, or you could just donate online at
“Thank you for your time and support”
