Since she was 8 years, Mikki Steddum has donated her birthday presents to children who needed them more than she did.

It’s a family tradition that started with her older siblings. So, when Mikki turned 11 this week, she once again re-gifted her birthday presents. Mikki, a fifth-grader at Hillcrest Elementary School in Enterprise, celebrated her birthday party at the Enterprise VFW this past weekend.

For a few hours prior to the actual birthday party, her family even invited any child who wanted to play on the obstacle course to do so by simply bringing an unwrapped gift for a child their age. “It was good and fun,” Mikki said.

We had a ring toss and the big blow-up obstacle course. ”This year, the gifts are being donated to a program at the family’s church in Enterprise, the Church With U.

The program, called Giving U, will use the donations to provide birthday and Christmas gifts to families in need. “There were arts and crafts things and also toys,” Mikki said.

Guests also gave gift cards and cash so Mikki could go out and add boy items to the collection. The tradition of donating birthday gifts started with Mikki’s older siblings – who are now ages 24 and 22.

They started it at age 9 and were allowed to choose how their gifts would be donated, said Katrina Steddum, Mikki’s mother.
