A Texas 13-year-old boy is making sure children who may not be able to celebrate the holidays have a good Christmas.
Jaxson Turner recently held his third annual Christmas event for children in need according to NBC DFW 5.
“I give up Christmas for myself and raise money to help Santa give Christmas to the homele-ss children at The Samaritan Inn in McKinney. This year, we had 61 kids. I was able to raise $5,900,” Turner told the news station.
Turner bought sneakers, jackets, socks, toys, and provided a hot meal.“It feels good to see the kids happy and the parents too. It was more special this year because people chose to help even in the midst of a pa-ndemic,” Turner said.
“It’s an honor to serve those who are less fortunate because it could be any of us facing a sad time of homele-ssness in our lives. I hope that I am making God and my community proud.”
McKinney Mayor George Fuller and his wife, Maylee, were both at the event to give a helping hand. Turner began his Never Too Young To Care nonprofit on his 10th birthday, which included back to school giveaways when he decided instead of gifts he wanted to feed the homele-ss in his community.
