Birthday Girl Donates to Senior Center Food Pantry

From dog food, to canned pudding and even Girl Scout cookies, 14-year-old Elizabeth Brown Worthington dropped off nearly 400 food and supplies items to the Gulfport Senior Center Food Pantry.

For the third year in a row Elizabeth Brown Worthington asked for food donations in lieu of gifts for her 14th birthday.

"I don't need 200 gifts," Worthington said with a smile.

The Gulfport teen started the tradition to give back to the community and help others. "It's fun," she said.

This year she dropped off nearly 400 items including canned goods, cereal, dog food and more. "132 cans," Worthington said to be exact.

"It was the first year we had laundry soap," Worthington said.

The teen plans on keeping the "food drive" going for years to come.

I met Elizabeth many times during my former job working for the city of Gulfport. She is just an all-around nice, sweet person. Gulfport is lucky to have her!

Elizabeth is one of the most giving teens in Gulfport! I often see her at City events, Council meetings, fundraisers and more! She's so involved :)
