VENETA, Ore. (KMTR) –- An eight-year-old girl is collecting supplies for care packages to send to kids all over the world this Christmas. This past holiday season, Autumn Prieto decided to give all her presents away to underprivileged children.
Now she’s putting together boxes full of school supplies, hygiene products and small toys for children in third-world countries. Autumn’s goal is one hundred boxes; she’s about halfway there now and plans to ship the packages this November.
Autumn’s dad started a blog, tracking her progress and providing more information about how others can get involved. Autumn is looking for more supplies and monetary donations to help her reach her goal.
