According to the Daily Mail, Kayla’s mother Lili said her daughter made a goal to help the homeless every since she saw a woman shivering on the streets nearly two years ago.
“She looked down and she said, ‘Imagine if everyone brought a blanket,'” Lili Soto said of the moment she asked her daughter what she wanted for her birthday.
So Kayla’s parents wrote a message about blankets in the girl’s birthday invitations, which were headed: “Helping the homeless, one blanket at a time.”
Kaya and her family hope to collect 200 blankets with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Locals can bring a new or used blanket to the Temple City sheriff’s station on Las Tunas Drive by March 2.
