Clarice Tinsley's Hometown Hero this week gave all of her birthday presents to Allen Community Outreach.
When Haley Do was 7 years old she saw something on The Disney Channel that gave her an idea. She decided that when she turned 8 she'd have a birthday party and donate her presents to kids who need them.
So in November she and her friends had a swimming party with pizza, birthday cake and presents. Then she and her parents went to Allen Community Outreach to donate her birthday gifts.
Allen Community Outreach is overwhelmed by Haley's generosity and compassion. Executive Director Glenda May said she is a shining example to kids about how they can care for other kids. She hopes more children will follow her example.
The non-profit is collecting Christmas presents for children in need and Haley's gifts will be added to that collection.
She said she'll always remember that her eighth birthday party was fun and that she made other kids happy by giving them her birthday presents.
Allen Community Outreach is a non-profit social service agency that helps 4,400 women, children, men and seniors in Allen. For more information, call 972-727-9131.
