James Cullen

Kewaunee, Wisconsin

James Cullen, 17, of Kewaunee, Wisconsin, a senior at Kewaunee High School, runs an annual “Weather Warm-Ups” drive, through which he has collected more than 400 jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats and mittens for people in need; his efforts include advertising his drive, setting up collection boxes at schools, churches and local businesses, and sorting, storing and distributing the donations. James, who also volunteers at a food pantry, started his clothing drive after seeing people inadequately dressed for winter.
