Boy’s birthday supports Food Bank

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – News 4 wants to recognize a student from Maple East Elementary, who threw a very impressive birthday party.

Zachary Jacobson just turned ten. Instead of asking for gifts, he asked for everyone at his birthday party to bring a donation for the Food Bank of Western New York.

You can see everything he got in the included picture, it’s about 65 pounds of food. He also helped raise $230.

Zachary learned about the Food Bank because of his involvement in Maple East’s Goodwill Junior Club.
