Although she has not been able to see firsthand the effect of her project on the gift recipients, she said she is thrilled by its success.

Because of privacy concerns, Julia hasn’t been able to deliver the gift bags in person to Neighbors Inc., in South St. Paul, and the Friends in Need Food Shelf in St. Paul Park.

But officials at both sites have assured her that her generosity hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“I just imagine their faces when they get it and it makes me really happy,” she said. “I know that some people don’t even give a second thought about some of the people who don’t receive presents on their birthdays.”

Additional information about Julia’s program can be found by contacting Neighbors Inc. or Friends in Need Food Shelf.
