TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Thursday is World Down Syndrome Day, so a local donut shop is making some extra sweet pastries in honor of a special little girl.

That little girl is five-year-old Jilly Boslay.

Square Donuts in Terre Haute made about 100 dozen donuts in honor of Jilly.

Employees say she comes in every Thursday with her Papa Bob after speech therapy.

That's why the shop decided to hold a fundraiser.

Each donut had blue and yellow icing with the numbers 3-2-1.

That number represents Down Syndrome Awareness Day, which is March 21st.

Owners say the event was such a success, they plan to do it again.

If you want to follow Jilly's journey, check her out on Facebook right here.
