The Gift of Giving

by Larry Little

Second grader Trey Hensley celebrated his birthday this week. His parents gave him a party.   Hensley was excited to turn 8 years old, but more excited about the gifts he would receive from his friends.  

Trey received 19 gifts, but he didn't take them home.  He thought it was a great opportunity to give to children who are less fortunate, so he donated his gifts to the Lufkin Salvation Army.

Captain Hank Harwell says he is impressed an 8 year old would sacrifice himself to make sure others have a Merry Christmas.
