Family donated more than 300 presents to patients at Kosair Children's Hospital

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Santa's helpers were handing out more 300 presents at Kosair Children's Hospital on Sunday, all because one family wanted to pay it forward.

The gifts were donated in honor of Nick Kellen, 11, a former patient who died three years ago.

His father, Shayne Kellen, collects the gifts in the family's home town of Henderson, Ky., and hand delivers them to patients.

He says he was inspired by Nick's generosity.

"If kids are here at Christmas, the parents aren't thinking about Christmas,"  he said.

Shayne Kellen says the presents were donated by schools, businesses, family members and friends of his son.
