DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

One young leader in the Dawson community is showing the younger generation how to give back.

Deshone Watson, 22, has stepped up and started his own nonprofit organization.

The organization is called Watson Brings Kids Together.

Watson started by organizing a clothing drive to donate children's clothes to kids in the Dawson area.

Clothes and shoes, as well as games and toys were donated and given out for free to anyone who showed up.

Watson hopes this is just the start of his good work and to show kids how they can lead and give back.
