MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

A 9-year-old boy feeding Huntsville's homeless and hungry with his allowance money got some help from the community.

On Saturday, Greyston Harper hosted a fall festival in Madison, where he collected non-perishable items.

Families who attended the event were required to bring canned goods and other non-perishable items for entrance into the event. Those items were set to be donated to the Downtown Rescue Mission.

This is the second year Greyson has put on the fall festival, which was his own idea.

Last year, he collected more than 700 food items to donate, and he's looking forward to surpassing that number this year.
