PORTAGE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - Aiden Burns, a Portage County 7-year-old, wants to help people at Northeast Ohio shelters this winter.

“I’m collecting socks for the homeless to keep their feet warm this Christmas because I don’t want people to be cold,” said Burns.

He wants to collect 500 pairs, and already has 100.

Aiden’s uncle designed a Facebook page called Socks From Santa to spread the word, and his mother’s employer, Kepich Ford, is filling a truck with socks to help him reach his goal.

Aiden plans to deliver the socks to Haven of Rest Ministries in Akron.
