Little Red Stories: Makenna’s coats for a Cause

We’re always so grateful to hear the ways you use our wagons to help others. This month’s Little Red Story comes from Makenna in Phoenix, Arizona. When she was nine, she saw a news story highlighting needs of the homeless community in her area. It dawned on Makenna that she could use her Radio Flyer wagon to collect coats to donate to a community in need. Within a few weeks, she collected over 100 coats and hauled them to the Phoenix Rescue Mission. Now at the age of 14, Makenna has used her wagon to donate over 3,000 coats in the Phoenix area.

 

We’re inspired by Makenna’s story as she continues to make a positive impact in her community with her Little Red Wagon. Do you have a Little Red Story? Share it with us here
