11-year-old gives back to soldiers instead of receiving birthday gifts
BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. -- An 11-year-old girl is doing something bigger than her own birthday party.
Gracie Snyder of Blair County is giving back to soldiers fighting overseas through Operation SOS.
Instead of getting birthday presents, she asked her guests to donate to soldiers.
Saturday she presented a check of $70.
She said she understands it is better to give than to receive.
There are people out there fighting for us every day, said Snyder.
She said this is just a small way to say thank you to those who sacrifice their lives overseas.
Gracie turns 12 next month.
