SLATINGTON, Pa. -

A nine-year-old girl in Lehigh County is celebrating her birthday with the gift of giving.

Tuesday Kayleigh Fenstermacher of Slatington celebrated her birthday by hosting a food drive for the homeless.

All donations are being sent to a local food bank and at Kayleigh's request her mom, Ashley, purchased can openers for homeless people to open their canned goods.

"I came up with having the food drive because I realize there's people out there who need help," said Kayleigh.

To top it off, everyone who took a donation to Kayleigh's house received a free cupcake.
