13-year-old Plano ISD student raises nearly $6,000 for disadvantaged kids during holiday season



PLANO, TX – Plano middle-schooler Jaxson Turner is a champion fundraiser for disadvantaged children and families in North Texas.

He began his mission at age 11 and continued his tradition this month by raising $5,900 for 61 homeless children at The Samaritan Inn in McKinney.

“Yesterday was amazing!” Jaxson, now 13, wrote in an Instagram post earlier this month. “So many smiles, laughter, clapping and eating!”

The money was enough to buy new sneakers and jackets, socks, toys and a hot meal for the kids, KXAS-TV (NBC5) reported.

Jaxson, who attends Renner Middle School in Plano ISD, also has his own nonprofit organization, N2Y2C (Never Too Young to Care), which he began working on at age 10.

“It feels good to see the kids happy and the parents too. It was more special this year because people chose to help even in the midst of a pandemic,” he told NBC5. “It’s an honor to serve those who are less fortunate because it could be any of us facing a sad time of homelessness in our lives. I hope that I am making God and my community proud.”
