Ayden's mom Latoya Mercer said he's now collecting food donations to feed people during the holidays.

"We know that many families are not as privileged as we have been, and we just want to give back," said Mercer.

Ayden will collect food items in exchange for lemonade Saturday in Americus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mercer's Barber Shop, 221 North Lee Street, Americus.
