6 year old’s act of kindness in Newfoundland

6-year-old Jackson Price has been delivering sandwiches, hot chocolates, soups and more to the homeless population in StJohn’s, the capital and largest city of Newfoundland and Labrador.

While crossing a homeless encampment in St John’s a couple of months ago, Jackson asked his mom Jennifer the reason behind the tents. On learning that some people do not have homes and have to live in such tents, Jackson was determined to do something for them. He asked his mother if they could make sandwiches and deliver them to the residents of the encampment. Looking at Jackson’s enthusiasm to help the homeless, his mother did not hesitate to turn little Jackson’s request to help others into reality.

Since September, Jackson has learnt how to make sandwiches and has been delivering meals to the vulnerable. Jackson has been getting help from his parents and from his sister who also has a fundraiser to help and support the vulnerable.

Jackson is very happy with the response of the people to whom he offered meals and wants to keep doing it to help as much as he can. He plans to distribute soups and hot chocolates to the homeless during the cold winter days and has promised to keep doing his bit to help the less fortunate.

At Polite Canada, we applaud Little Jackson’s big steps and wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
