One local 10-year-old girl used her birthday to benefit others.
Saturday, City Councilman Todd Klein recognized 10-year-old Katelyn Derrick for her selfless gift to the Humane Society.
Instead of gifts for her 10th birthday, Katelyn asked her classmates at Murfee Elementary School to bring donations to help animals at the Humane Society.
Katelyn raised more than ten bags full of donations for the Humane Society. The bags included dog and cat food, blankets, toys and leashes.
