Evan Robinson

Chicago, Illinois

Evan Robinson, 12, of Chicago, Ill., a seventh-grader at Kenwood Academy High School, raised more than $2,000 for relief efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricanes Irma and Maria by making and selling nearly 1,000 empanadas. When out-of-towners contributed to #PiesforPuertoRico but couldn’t pick up their empanadas in person, Evan donated their pies to homeless shelter.
