Jeremiah is a Junior at Nolan Catholic High School in Ft. Worth, Texas, and for the past 10 years, has been visiting local nursing homes donating items to elderly residents.
The collaboration between Hershey and Youth Service America supports youth who are changing America. Jeremiah was selected as a hero and also received funding to support his community service initiative.
When asked why he decided to target the elderly, he said, “The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals help us to identify global issues. I selected SDG 3: Health because we are living during a global pandemic and we cannot leave our elders behind.”
