When 8-year-old William Winslow learned about child hunger in school, he decided to do something about it. So the second-grader launched a food drive for the charity BackPack Buddies in his hometown of Raleigh, N.C., and this week announced he’d raised enough money to feed 16 hungry kids for an entire year. William and 50 volunteers—mostly friends he trained himself—collected over $3,000 and some 3,300 pounds of food. Next year, William hopes to expand the program to a regional level. “I don’t think he even understands the depth of what he’s been able to do,” said his mother, Blythe Clifford.
