4-Year-Old McMechen Boy Exceeds His Canned Food Collection Goal

Posted: Updated:

A four-year-old McMechen boy who wished everyone could have food on their table is about to get his wish.

In September, Noah Grigsby told his mom that instead of getting candy for Halloween this year, he wanted to give cans of food to the hungry. So, he decided to collect canned food instead of candy on Halloween.

The campaign began with a goal of 400 cans. Now, Noah has already exceeded that goal, with more than 2,000 cans collected, and on Thursday, residents of Windsor Manor in Wheeling added to it. Noah was the guest of honor at a Halloween party at Windsor Manor. He dressed up like Rooster Cogburn, a John Wayne character, for the celebration.

When the drive is done, it will all go to the first Church of God Food Pantry in McMechen, and be delivered to families in need the week before Thanksgiving. If you are interested in donating to the cause, call the Grigsby's at 304-233-1513 and they'll make arrangements to pick it up.
