12-Year-Old Holds Birthday Coat Drive

Posted: Updated:

An Albemarle County boy has a warm birthday wish for the entire community. Saturday Ashton Ryan celebrated his 12th birthday by hosting a coat drive at CiCi's Pizza.

Ashton's birthday bash had a moon bounce, face painting, a live band, and a whole lot of heart. Ashton's mom says he is active in the community, and that this party with a cause was all his idea.

Ashton Ryan stated, "I want every child to have a coat for winter because I know how it is to not have enough money to get a coat. That's why people can come here to donate a coat and if you need one, you can come and pick em up."

By the end of the day, Ashton collected more than 200 coats at his birthday bash.

Families in need of coats and people who want to donate coats can learn more by emailing Ashton at Ashtonswish@aol.com
