BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - With the season of giving nearly upon us, one man decided to give something very personal. A kidney.

Luis Clay donated one of his kidneys to his pastor, Father George Reger of Buffalo's Blessed Trinity Church.

Clay and Father Reger attended Thursday night's National Kidney Foundation Annual Holiday Tree decorating ceremony.

And now that the two share a special bond, the donor had some words of advice for the recipient.

"...he told me I better take care of it because he can't do it again," said Father Reger.
