Noah Wille

Polk City, Iowa

Noah Wille, 17, of Polk City, Iowa, a senior at North Polk High School, created “Ornaments for Outreach,” recruiting his friends to help transform plain wooden paint stirrers into Christmas decorations they sell to raise money for buying supplies for a local homeless shelter. He has raised more than $2,000 in two years and, in 2018 alone, bought and prepared 500 care packages with food and hygiene items to help the homeless and hungry of Des Moines.
