William Winslow is an 8-year-old on a mission to change the world…starting in his own community.
The second-grader at A.B. Combs Elementary School in Raleigh, N.C. has pledged to fight childhood hunger.
This year alone, William’s food drive collected enough food and money to keep at least 16 kids fed for an entire year, William’s mother told The Huffington Post in an email.
William told his mother, “I can’t stand the thought of my classmates being hungry.”
Last weekend William’s second annual food drive began. With the help of his parents and around 50 volunteers, William gathered 3,335 pounds of food and more than $3,000 in donations, so far.
When his father asked him how he views the future, William simply said, “I see no hungry kids.”
Watch the video William put together to inspire his community to get involved with helping solve childhood hunger:
