Last week, Maddox O’Connor asked police to help hand out 200 blessing bags.
When you step into 10-year-old Maddox O’Connor’s living room, it looks like a blessing bag assembly line.
“Makes them think they are really loved,” said Maddox.
The notes typically say “You are so loved by Jesus and Maddox’s Mission. ”
“It is the best thing I have ever done,” said Maddox.
And I think that kind of pulled on his heart because he knows what it is like to struggle for even the basic things,” said Maddox’s mom, Shawn O’Connor.
“He said ‘thank you’ and I said ‘God bless. ’ And that’s how it all started,” said Maddox.
“If they see someone in need, they can hand them out,” said Maddox.
Maddox is 10 years old.
“He has done more to show love and compassion and kindness in his little 10 years of life than most people can in an entire lifetime,” said Shawn.
“They can make a difference in the world,” said Maddox.
