A seven-year-old Redding girl named Ellie will sell cookies in front of Village Market from 11 to 3 on Sunday, Jan. 10. She will donate all the proceeds to the Animals in Distress cat shelter.

Earlier that day, from 8 to 10, she will be at the Raymour and Flanigan shopping center in Brookfield.

Animals in Distress is the no-kill shelter behind the town hall annex on Danbury Road that cares for and places homeless cats and kittens year-round. It is open for adoptions on Saturdays between 1 and 4, and during the week by appointment.
