A Muhlenberg boy is finishing up a year-long journey. Seven-year-old Ayden Robbins does good deeds year-round, but he’s most proud of the thousands of cards he’s written to first responders. In all, he’s written cards to 68 departments across the country, from California to Alaska to Florida to Maine. In October, he started sending Christmas cards to every department he could. “We got everything delivered off Christmas eve. His total was 3,028 Christmas cards,” explains Ayden’s Grandmother, Leah Norris. He hand-delivered to departments in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio. Owensboro FOP even sponsored his journey. “They sent him a check in the mail for a couple hundred dollars. We opened him a bank account and deposited it in there.” Leah says these first responders are Ayden’s heroes, every officer, every firefighter and every dispatcher. The messages he receives personalize it so much more.
