March 22nd will be Jacob’s 5th birthday. If you know Jacob you will know his biggest passion is trains - ever since he was 2! Jacob’s favourite place to ride trains, Heritage Acres, had a fire this week.
Jacob’s favourite conductor Claude (in the photo) is one of his favourite people. Claude has taken the time to show Jacob all about the mini trains and hosted Jacob’s 3rd birthday, too. Because of COVID Jacob’s 4th birthday and 5th birthday couldn’t happen atHeritage Acres so he wants to fundraise birthday money for Heritage Acres instead.
None of the trains or artifacts were damaged in the fire and likely insurance will help with a lot of the damage but this place runs on donations and Jacob wants them to have his birthday money so more kids can return and have a great time like he always does.
