13-year-old making a difference


STEVENS POINT (WKOW) -- There's a boy in Stevens Point who has made a life of helping people.

Now he's getting a little help from his friends.

13-year-old Noah Lamaide first gained recognition when he was just 9, by raising more than $10,000 to save his grandmother's home from foreclosure.

This year, he started a food and gift drive with his friends, collecting toys and canned goods for families who can't afford them.

Noah says they've gotten a huge response.

"Makes me feel like there's more people than just me who think that everyone should get a present on Christmas."

All the donations will go to Operation Bootstrap, a non profit that helps hundreds of needy families every year.
