Two Local Kids Sacrifice Their Birthday Presents For The Hungry – The Good News
I love it when kids do amazing things. It really gives me a lot of hope for our future when there are so many other stories out there that give us doubt. I also love that our friends at News10 ABC did this story so I could hear some GOOD local news about good people.
Nate and Quinn Mitchell are siblings from Menands, both of whom have birthdays between October and December, and this year for their combined birthday party they decided to do things a little bit different.
Instead of bringing gifts to the party, they asked their friends to each bring a loaf of bread and bologna. They did, and everyone had fun playing games and making sandwiches. In fact, more than 100 people were there making sandwiches for the homeless. When all was said and done, they had made and delivered over 900 sandwiches to the Capital City Rescue Mission. How cool is that?
According to News 10 ABC:
The siblings were inspired by their neighbor Carol Demetko. They wanted to “pay it forward.”
“I saw that I had a lot of stuff at home, and I have a good family, so I decided I wanted to make sandwiches and give them to the homeless shelter,” Quinn said.
“I just thought it was the right thing to do, and we have so much and they have so little, I thought we should give back,” Nate said."
