Girl, 10, hopes to put an end to hunger with Kans for Kids food drive

EL PASO, Texas A very passionate 10-year-old girl started a food drive with the idea to have kids collect food for other children.

Kans for Kids was held by El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Sunday at the Walmart Neighborhood Marker on Resler Drive.

"When I went to Houston for Youth Service America, I found out at the Houston food bank that one in four children in El Paso were hungry and I just thought that that was really sad and now it's one in three people. And I just think that number is despicable and I really want to help out in my community, said Eleanor Schoenbrun, who organized the drive.

The food drive was part of a larger effort to celebrate Global Youth Service Day, an annual campaign that has children and youth work together to improve their communities.
