Colin Wanless

Boca Raton, Florida

Colin Wanless, 14, of Boca Raton, Fla., an eighth-grader at Pine Crest Middle School, has been volunteering with a Miami-based hunger-fighting foundation since 2009, and started a Boca Raton-area chapter in 2015 to expand the organization’s efforts to his region. Colin, whose efforts have helped to raise more than $10,000 for fighting hunger and fed more than 13,000 people, recruited 25 local youth to join the board he leads for the Joshua’s Heart Foundation.
