HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A lot of people have a heart for helping the homeless; just not many of them are quite as young as this one girl.

Kyra Toles-White and her family dropped off loads of clothing, toiletries, even money to the Village Marketplace on Wednesday. It's a drop-off location for items to help the homeless.

Kyra turned seven years old on Sunday, and she asked her birthday party guests to bring these items instead of presents for her.

"Some of my friends did it last year for their birthday and I just wanted to try it. Why does it bother you? Why does it make you sad? I don't know. It's just that I don't like that they have to sleep in tents and when it rains, I feel bad for them," Kyra said.

Kyra's step-mom says Kyra even volunteered, taking food and clothing to a homeless camp.
