FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — A young Fishers boy is making a difference in the lives of children he hasn’t met through a donation he made to a local fire department.
The Fishers Department of Fire and Emergency Services received a special delivery to their fire station on May 23 from Hudson Miles. Hudson is 9 1/2 years old and has Asperger’s Syndrome.
Officials say Hudson read an article one day in his Scholastic Newsletter that mentioned children going on ambulances and how afraid they are. Hudson asked his mother for help, and together they raised $160 from Facebook friends to buy stuffed animals that could be given to kids on ambulances who are scared.
Hudson and his mom dropped off the stuffed animals at the Fishers fire station without leaving their contact information. Fire officials say Hudson’s school later tweeted about his gift to the fire department.
The fire department says they are grateful for Hudson’s donation, adding his generous donation will keep their ambulances stocked for quite a while.
