|Classmates show the spirit of giving|
Wallace kindergarteners Ainsley Strawder, daughter of Cody and Heather Strawder of Wallace, and Denay Pelster, daughter of Matt and Kassie Pelster of Elsie, celebrated their sixth birthdays together in December.
They had a party with their friends, but rather than receiving gifts for themselves, the girls asked their friends to bring unwrapped gifts for the girls to donate to kids that are less fortunate.
The girls agreed that December is a time for giving, rather than receiving, so after their party concluded, the girls took their gifts to a Salvation Army donation site, in hopes that their birthday gifts would brighten some other child’s Christmas.
Ainsley and Denay’s parents are very proud of their girls for being so generous, and hope the girls have a lifetime of such selfless acts of kindness!
