If you looked under the dictionary for the word, "role-model." You may find a picture of Miss Wisconsin Jr. Preteen, Paige Kassner.
At just 10 years old, Paige has established her own philanthropic organization, called "warm hands, warm hearts." Since last fall, Paige has been collecting mittens, gloves, and cold weather gear to help provide warmth during those cold winter Wisconsin months for families and children in need. To date, this outstanding organization has helped to provide warmth to over 450 people. THAT IS EXTRAORDINARY!
However, Paige's service within her community doesn't just stop there. Paige is an avid supporter of both the MDA and ALA associations. However, she takes the word "involvement" to a whole new level. This year, this spunky 10 year old will be ORGANIZING the first annual Community of Hope event, that will bring together area talent and benefiting both the MDA and ALA organizations.
