Nathan Thorton IV for Politics Every Days
A fitting figure for the season of giving, Nathan is a friend of ours with a big heart. His story goes to show that anyone can spread love, make a difference, and help others; even a kid in junior high. An all-around student athlete who plays football, basketball, and runs track. After seeing another athlete on social media giving away shoes to those in need, Nathan was inspired to do the same in his own city. His parents were very supportive and reached out to counselors in nearby schools to get names and sizes of students that could benefit from these donations. With the help of local news exposure, more people heard what Nathan was doing and reached out for more donations to support his effort to give back. Eventually, we had the opportunity to team up with Nathan using money raised from Shake Back Sunday and we’re excited to feature him today.
