Birthdays are usually a day to celebrate yourself, but one girl is using her special day to help others.

Jhordan Davis held her 11th birthday party at the Houston Food Bank. Her mother says Jhordan volunteered at the food bank in January and had such a good time she wanted to have her birthday party there.

She and her friends sorted packaged foods and canned goods into bags for distribution. Jhordan asked her guests to bring $11 worth of donations instead of gifts.

"I don't really need everything in the world," said Jhordan. "There's other people out there that don't have anything at all, and so I want to help the people who don't have anything at all."

Jhordan is a big football fan, so the party had a Texans theme. The team even sent her a gift to wish her a happy birthday.
