George Kuhne, son of George and Julie Kuhne of Everett, recently celebrated his tenth birthday. Usually a birthday is a one day celebration. However George, who just completed the fourth grade at Everett Elementary School, decided to extend his celebration by donating a portion of his monetary gifts to St. Vincent de Paul. George said he was inspired to help the poor after encountering homeless people on the way to a recent Pittsburgh Pirates game.
The Kuhnes are members of St. John the Evangelist parish in Everett where Father Derek Fairman is the pastor.
