Margot Johnson, a sophomore at Radnor High School, helped start a chapter of the Travis Manion Foundation at Radnor High School, on Veterans Day. She designed the flyer that was distributed at her club table. She has approximately 80 kids who have expressed interest in participating. She is currently collecting basic clothing and household items to help TMF provide for Afghan families who are resettling in the Philadelphia area.

At Delaware Valley Journal, we’re looking for more kids (18 and younger) like Margot who are volunteering with charities, church groups, Scout troops, etc. — or just putting the Christmas spirit into action all on their own! Send us a photo of your favorite Santa’s helper in action, and information about the charity they’re supporting, and you might just see it featured at DVJournal.

PLUS: We’ll pick one of the highlighted charities and make our own $1,000 donation to the cause!


Just send your photo (with names and ages) of the kids you spot helping others — ringing the Salvation Army bell, collecting for Toys for Tots, working at a local food bank, whatever! — and email it to [email protected].

If possible, please include a link to the charity’s website, too, so we can encourage others to support the cause.
