Boy Saved Money For Video Games But Donates All $450 To Local Food Pantry
May 25, 2018
A 7th grader at Avon Middle School North in Indiana donated $450 to a local food pantry.
Most kids can’t wait to spend their allowance on video games and new toys.
But after learning about the food shortage at a local food pantry, Brecken Hayes chose to use all of the money he has saved up to help those in need.
“I don’t really need that stuff,” Brecken told WTHR. “Those are wants. People need food and water to live. and they don’t have that. And I already have it. So I don’t want to be greedy. I just wanted to help them.”
Brecken’s donation was nearly half of the entire school’s donation of $1,000 to the Mary Lee Maier Community Pantry.
