Danielle Sherwin

Massachusetts

Danielle Sherwin, 13, of Gardner Middle School in Gardner, Massachusetts, has been preparing meals and serving them to the homeless and hungry at a local soup kitchen since she was 11 years old. Her weekly visits to the soup kitchen began as a project through her religion class, and though it wasn't her idea, Danielle said, "I made it happen." Danielle plans to continue her service at the soup kitchen until she graduates from high school and moves on to college.
