Norman -

Meet Amberly, a young girl with an immense passion for giving back.

Instead of enjoying the chocolate for herself, she is going into homeless communities giving it to them this Valentine's day.

The cards she writes: You are loved, your story matters, and you have a purpose, topped with other treats.

"I am giving out flowers, chocolate, and cards so the homeless people can be happy," said Amberly Shroyer, the creator of Amberly's Sensational Celebration.

For a second-grader in Norman, the world changed during the pandemic. Amberly missed volunteering with her family and was concerned about the homeless community she once worked with, but then she saw her calling.

"I was watching this video of a teenage girl doing birthday parties for little kids and I looked at my mom and said, what about the grownup," said Shroyer. 

Amberly created an organization throwing birthday parties for those without a home in the Norman community.

"We made vanilla chocolate, strawberry cake, and chocolate cake," said Shroyer. 

From cake to presents, she now is looking at the upcoming holiday, excited to share.

"Some homeless people do not have much, and I think if they do not have much, I can give them," said Shroyer.
