Makenna started collecting coats at the age of 9. After seeing a story on the news highlighting the needs of the homeless on the streets. Makenna knew there had to be something she could do. Makenna walked the neighborhood handing out flyers asking for coats to be donated to the homeless community. A few weeks later she walked around with her RadioFlyer wagon to retrieve just over a 100 coats to be donated. Makenna took her wagon and her coats to the Phoenix Rescue Mission to be donated. Makenna is now 14 years old and her and her wagon have been able to donate over 3000 coats to those in need in the Phoenix Arizona area.
