John Fletcher

Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

John Fletcher, 17, of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, a senior at Ernest W. Seaholm High School, started and runs “The Giving Room,” a project through which he collects and redistributes toiletry items for people in need; his efforts include soliciting and picking up mini toiletries from hotels, then organizing, packaging and delivering them to warming centers across Detroit. John was inspired to start his project after learning that hotels regularly throw away unopened toiletries.
