Emmy Miller
Emmy Miller Emmy is amazing 14 year old with a passion for helping the homeless and celebrating life to the fullest, even against many challenges including autism and diabetes. After moving to Nashville two years ago, Emmy’s heart was overwhelmed with the amount of homelessness she saw on the streets, so she came up with the idea of giving out gifts on Christmas Day as a way to celebrate the true spirit of the season. Now an annual family tradition, Emmy collects blankets, warm socks, gloves, and treats to wrap in a sack with a ribbon on top before hitting the streets around 10am every Christmas morning to spread some festive cheer. The excitement of all her newfound friends when they receive the gifts that Emmy has lovingly prepared is the best gift that her family could ever receive, and she makes it her year-round mission to help those in need by keeping extra water, clothing, and change in the car for her friends on the streets.
