Visiting Kitsap Mental Health Services/Madrona Day Treatment School Therapeutic Playground

On Wednesday Oct. 27 I had the privilege of meeting a very special girl named Alanna Nixon. Alanna and her friend Paris Harrison (who could not be here on this day). with their organization "Kids4Kids", raised $38,000 to build a Therapeutic Playground for children attending Madrona Day Treatment School at Kitsap Mental Health Services (KMHS). How amazing that these two young girls made such an impact and invaluable contribution to this community! I heard their story on the news and just had to see it for myself!

Alanna and her Mother joined me for lunch after our KMHS visit. We had such a nice time. I so enjoyed them both! Thank you Alanna and Paris for embracing special needs children with such dedication, hard work and most importantly love! What a blessing you both are!
