STAMFORD - A young Stamford boy made donations this holiday season to make sure other children were able to have a special Christmas.

Zakaria Boujid, 6, donated his own toys to Inspirica Inc., a homeless shelter, on Christmas Eve.

Boujid’s father says the family wanted to support the community by giving gifts to local children in need.

Boujid says he wanted the children to have something to open on the holiday. "Because it was Christmas and I wanted to see the kids happy," he explained.
