CHELMSFORD (CBS) – Can you imagine a child not wanting birthday or Christmas gifts?

Instead, asking for grocery store gift cards to donate to those less fortunate?

Twelve-year-old Isabelle Cole from Chelmsford has been doing just that since she was 10-years-old.

Cole walks the neighborhood with her wagon collecting canned goods from her generous neighbors.

Recently, she delivered nearly 500 cans of food to the McCarthy Middle School Food Drive.

Cole’s gifts come from giving rather than receiving.
