Parading for a Purpose

For the second year in a row, Girl Scout Daisy Troop 26173 used the Moorestown Lions Club’s Annual Holiday Parade as more than just an excuse to dress up. The 6- and 7-year-old girls are parading for a purpose and will collect toys for families in need as they make their way down Main Street on Saturday, Dec. 1. Troop leader Heather Colella said one of the most important messages she wants to convey to the troop is the importance of giving. Colella said she regularly tells the girls giving is about more than just material things. She said something as simple as a smile can be powerful.

A Song of Support

By the time Ava Ventrella turned 5, people were constantly stopping her and her mother, Nicole, on the street asking if the young girl did photography work. Nicole said she never envisioned taking her daughter to acting classes, but after a photograph led Ventrella into modeling and an agent, she thought: Why not?

Now 9 years old, Ventrella is using her acting as a means of connection and as a way to give back. This summer she and a group of 1,000 fellow summer campers recorded a version of “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman.” The profits from the iTunes track will go to NSPCC’s Childline Services, a supportline for whatever problems children may be facing.
