Hometown Heroes: Landon H.
CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A compassionate 11 year old boy has rallied his school and his community behind him to raise money and collect necessities for the homeless. The Western Massachusetts Red Cross will honor Landon Himmelreich as a Hometown Hero.
“I just sometimes see them on the street, they hold up cardboard signs, they need clothes, they need help, they need money. People drive right by them, they don’t even acknowledge them,” said Landon Himmelreich.
