Tri-States girl collects Honor Flight donations in lieu of birthday presents

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A local girl just celebrated her birthday, but she didn't get any presents.

Instead, Olivia Plant asked her friends to give money to the Great River Honor Flight.

Olivia collected $111 to help send our local veterans to Washington D.C. to see memorials in their honor. 

Olivia sent a simple note of thanks to the vets along with her donation.

"Hi. I'm Olivia Plant. I collected 111 dollars for the Great River Honor Flight on my birthday instead of presents.

Thank you for serving.

Olivia Plant."
