Boy uses birthday money to buy food for kids in need

Ionia ISD

IONIA, Mich. (WOTV)-Braxton Montgomery is a 7-year old student with autism, who lives in Ionia County. When Braxton heard children were going to bed hungry in his community-he wanted to help. He asked his mom if he could use his birthday money to purchase food to help children who are less fortunate. Braxton purchased food for the IM KID’S 3rd Meal Program.

Braxton shatters the myth that children with autism lack empathy for others. His mother said “Braxton has always been a compassionate person”. This is a perfect example of the power of one.

Here’s how you can help!
