A local seventh grader is trying to change the world-one PB&J at a time. Tommy Edwards started Tommy's PB&J Brigade at age 3, delivering sandwiches to the homeless on Thanksgiving Day.

“It's fun actually to have a bunch of my friends over and make PB&J sandwiches,” Tommy said.

His friends chimed in "It is good to help out!" Another added “It is good to help other people who don't have what you have.”

Tommy is now thirteen and gets a lot of help from his parents Kristina and Tony.

“It is all hands on deck, now we don't know any different -- it's just PB&J time!" Tony said.

The Edwards family said they started with giving out 10 sandwiches the first year and now they are up to 250 care packages with a lot of help from volunteers. Each bag is filled with lots of goodies from shampoo to hand warmers.

One of the sweetest parts is the hand written note on the outside of every sandwich bag. Tommy said it doesn't matter how old you are, you can always give back.

You can get involved by reaching out on the PB&J Brigade Facebook. Bag assembly and deliver 8:30 a.m. at the Loaves and Fishes area of downtown to pass them out.
