Skippack girl turns B-day into collection for others

Skippack girl turns B-day into collection for others

Instead of asking for the latest doll or computer gadget for her birthday, a girl from Collegeville decided to ask for clothing items to donate to other less fortunate children.

Elizabeth Sarvey, a second grade student at Skippack Elementary School, turned eight on October 16 and after seeing a little girl on the Disney Channel donate shoes to children in need, was inspired to do the same.

With the help of her family and friends, Elizabeth collected over 75 items of children's clothing during her birthday party at a store in Skippack. Ten children attended.

When asked why she wanted to donate the clothes, Elizabeth responded how she loves to go shopping and "wanted other children to have nice, warm clothes for winter," the way she does.

Elizabeth and her mother, Sara Sarvey, will be donating the clothes to the Salvation Army Shelter in Norristown next week.
