Twin Ports first responders help make 7-year-old’s birthday request come true

First responder donation

TWIN PORTS-- A 7-year-old with a big heart wanted one thing for her birthday, and it wasn't anything to keep for herself.

The Superior and Duluth Fire Department's teamed up with 7-year-old Monroe Kroll, to give extra comfort to those in the community who may need it most.

For Kroll's 7th birthday, instead of gifts to keep for herself, she requested that her friends buy stuffed animals to give to children in need of comfort.

Both fire departments jumped on board with the plan to help distribute the toys to the less fortunate.

The 7-year-old hugged each stuffed animal, before giving the toys away so each child receiving the stuffy also receives a hug from her.

The departments are grateful for Kroll's donation and send their appreciation.

"As we visited with her, it became very clear that she has the kindest of hearts, and she definitely left a mark on ours," Superior Fire Department.
