A 10-year-old from Grand Rapids has collected hundreds of blankets to donate to the homeless, already surpassing his goal for next year.
In September, 24 Hour News 8 went with Ayden Quimby as he passed out 132 blankets to the homeless. Along with each blanket was a note that read, “The Ayden Project 2016: Because everyone deserves to be warm.” Since that story aired, The Ayden Project has gotten national attention and some big donations.
When Ayden started his project three years ago, he donated 10 blankets. The next year, he handed out 25. His goal for 2017 was to collect 300.
