Nine year old Faith Rose Mueller has proven that you’re never too young to help out others in need. On her birthday, Saturday, February 16, Faith wanted to celebrate her special day at the Skate Factory in Vero Beach with close friends and family as well as her classmates from Glendale Christian School.
Learning from her mother (Lynn Mueller) and her volunteer days with the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition (IRCHSC) and their TLC Newborn program, Faith sent out party invitations that noted she was holding a Baby Drive for IRCHSC. “Instead of gifts, please bring baby diapers or baby food. There are a lot of people in need so let’s make people happy.” Nearly twenty attendees skated their day away at the venue while displaying a table full of diapers, baby food, toys, books and other vital baby supplies that later got delivered to the Healthy Start Coalition Office.
“Faith’s birthday wish for making other people happy came true,” expressed IRCHSC Executive Director Kathie Cain. Many newborns will have the supplies they need because of her party. The Coalition is grateful to Faith for her big heart of giving.”
In the end, Faith Rose did receive many wonderful personal gifts from her family that included dolls, crafts, games, and with her new found love of astronomy, she received a telescope and a large thanks from the Healthy Start Coalition. IRCHSC welcome donations like Faiths. Arrangements can be made by calling 772-563-9118.

Faith is obviously a very specai young lady and her parents have every reason to be proud of her. It would be a wonderful world if all parents could teach their children the lessons of giving.
Traditionally, shower gifts are often centered on the baby accessories, which mainly include soft toys, clothes, bedding, etc.
