Birthday giving

By  | 

DENISON -- A Grayson County family is teaching their child about giving at an early age. Max Hinsley's friends and family dropped off a trailer full of supplies to the Grayson County Shelter Monday night.

At Max's first birthday party on Saturday, family members asked party-goers to bring supplies for the shelter instead of gifts. Max's mom Rachel received a list of items the shelter needs including diapers, cleaning supplies, pillows, and paper goods.

"We wanted to have a big party and we don't need a lot of presents so we came up with this," Rachel said.

The shelter director says she is grateful for the generosity. She plans to use the pillows and towels in a welcome packet for shelter residents.
