An Arroyo Grande teen once again used her birthday to help raise money and awareness for a Central Coast animal rehabilitation center.

Almost every year since the first grade, McKaila Lewis uses her birthday to accept donations to Pacific Wildlife Care instead of birthday presents.

Pacific Wildlife Care workers also show up with different animals to teach people how the rehab center helps local wildlife.

This year, along with donations from the community, the now 17-year-old also donated some of her own money that she made this summer working at the Avila Valley Barn.

McKaila's mom says her daughter's biggest message is that anyone can do this and make a difference.

The party this past weekend reportedly brought in $800. Over the years, she has been able to donate thousands to Pacific Wildlife Care.

McKaila is heading into her senior year at Arroyo Grande High School.
