Peyton Hausman and his great-grandmother, Jean Schooler, prepared meals for 30 homeless people in St. Joseph, Missouri.

The holiday seasons, to most of us, mean wonderful times of sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter’s night, dining room tables full of food, and the presence of family and friends by our sides.
One young man, Peyton Hausman, nine years old and great-grandson of Jean Schooler, Fairfax, Missouri, realized just how blessed he is to have all of this. He also understands that not everyone is as fortunate as he is and that a small act of kindness can make a huge impact on both the recipients as well as himself.
With the help of his Great-grandmother Schooler, Peyton was able to prepare and deliver lunches of hot homemade chicken noodle soup, biscuits, cornbread, and cookies to 30 homeless people in downtown St. Joseph, Missouri, the day before Thanksgiving.
Grandma Schooler was able to do all of the baking and Peyton and his mom prepared the soup. Eighty-six years separate these two special people, but they are both young at heart when it comes to wanting to help people experiencing tough times.
Peyton is already getting things together for Christmas where he will head back out to find more of the homeless whom he is planning to gift. This time it will be ham sandwiches, chips and the addition of socks and gloves to help them keep warm.
