We are always honored and grateful when children come in with food to donate that was given to them in lieu of birthday presents.
Malia, 8, and Liberty, 6, have been part of this special group for five years. That’s right. These two amazing Boise girls have given up their presents and asked their party guests bring food instead since Malia was 3 and Liberty was 1. This year they brought in 94 pounds, the equivalent of 78 meals.
“Their birthdays are close together and so close to Christmas, and we thought your stores probably run low this time of year,” said their mom, Jenny. “And I think we’ve started a trend. Some of their friends are starting to do the same thing.”
Thank you, Malia and Liberty, and a very, very happy birthday to both of you.
