Falls boy making a list for those less fortunate


Niagara Gazette — This deep compassion for others is not something new for Christopher, according to his mother. Each year, the family puts together gift baskets filled with toys, books and clothes to donate to less fortunate families during the holidays. 

“I try to teach my children that it’s better to give than to receive,” she said. “Christopher is spreading the word out loud to his brothers, friends and others around him that this is what’s important in life.”  

When close family friend Erika Williams of Niagara Falls heard of Christopher’s newest endeavor to help the hurricane victims she was not at all surprised. 

“He’s always had a big heart and has been very giving. This generosity coming from a child that’s so young is amazing. He’s a special young man and he’s going to keep on doing special things in his lifetime,” she said.

“Christopher has a birthday coming up and for his party he’s made a very adamant point that he does not want to receive any gifts. Instead, he has requested that people bring donations to help support Project C.J. Cares and the families in need,” she said. 

The family is collecting any donations that can help those affected by the hurricane to have a smoother transition back to a sense of normalcy. With the help of his family, Christopher is patiently waiting for a means to ship these goods to the northeast. 

“No matter how long it takes for us to get donations to these people we’ll do it," Arialle said. "I want my son to believe in what he’s doing and know that it’s something good. We’re not going to give up."
