You read here about Brenden Foster, the 11-year-old whose last wish was to feed the homeless. In addition to local friends who took sandwiches to the tent city he was concerned about, Brenden's story inspired projects all over the country.
A TV station in Los Angeles held a food drive. School kids in Ohio collected cans. People in Pensacola, Florida gathered goods.
And here in Western Washington, KOMO viewers from all over took part in the Stuff the Truck food drive in Brenden's honor. Hundreds with generous hearts donated six and a half huge truck loads of groceries and more than $60,000 in cash to benefit Northwest Harvest and Food Lifeline.
Brenden touched hearts all over the world. His wish came true, and he lived to see it.
Brenden died on Friday, November 21st in his mother's arms. http://www.komonews.com/news/34851839.html -Thanks, AliS
