Each week we spotlight a new kid of the week. There are great kids exhibiting positive behavior and you’ll get to know a new kid every Saturday on B-95.5, in the Times Union, and Live on Capital News 9. This week’s Kid(s) Of The Week is…9 year-old Jillian Margolies of Niskayuna.
Jillian, a 4th Grade student at Rosedale Elementary School in Niskayuna asked her parents and friends to donate to the Schenectady County SPCA in lieu of giving her gifts for her recent birthday. Jillian said “I told my mom and dad that I didn’t need any gifts, I just want to make sure that the animals have food and a warm place to sleep”. So far she has raised about $200.00. Jillian has been honored by the Schenectady County SPCA for her selfless generosity in putting the needs of animals before her own.
