KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A little girl is showing the true meaning of Christmas by giving up her birthday gifts to Gatlinburg wildfire victims.
Marisa Priano, 10, decided to give her birthday gifts to the American Red Cross, which will, in turn, be given to Gatlinburg wildfire victims.
“It makes me feel like those kids actually get something to do and something to play with. And it makes me feel joyful and it makes them feel joyful probably,” she said.
This is the third year Marisa has donated her presents to those in need.
