Herkimer boy forgoes birthday gifts to help humane society

MOHAWK, N.Y. (WKTV) Something we are hearing more and more about is a child who decides to help out an organization instead of accepting birthday presents.

That was the case this weekend for 12-year-old Damien Leigh of Herkimer. He had a birthday party on Saturday, but instead of a gift for him, he asked for his guests to bring a gift that could be used by the Herkimer County Humane Society.

Damien and his family delivered all of those 'presents' on Sunday afternoon, much to the delight and surprise of those at the humane society.
