11-year-old collects items for the homeless

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

If you think it's cold out there, imagine spending the night on the streets.

One 11-year-old was concerned about the city's homeless and spent Tuesday afternoon lending a helping hand.

Camden Giroux has been doing this for two years now. He collects items to help the homeless, stuffs them in backpacks, and hand delivers them.

"Most people in this world treat them like they're nothing, and we want them to know they are just as important as everyone else," said Camden.

Camden says he gives away about 20 backpacks every two months.
