10-year-old boy raises money to help the homeless

This weekend, a local boy will be raising money to help the homeless.

"My name's Miles and we have 'Miles to Go' gift bags in the car."

But it's not for himself, Miles Newbold says these gift bags are for the homeless. 

"It makes me feel sad when I see them on the road without a home," he said.

His mom, Danielle, says they've already handed out more than 2,200 gift bags to the homeless in Orlando.

Now, they're going from gift bags to shopping bags. 

Miles and his Mom will be raising donations at Bloomingdale's during a family fun event. 

They say the store will also sell their T-shirts and donate 10 percent of proceeds on the day of the event.

The boy's mother said another company donated 5,000 pairs of socks to put in the bags.  

"It makes them feel valued, and there's a card that says you matter, and it's signed by the person that packed the bag," she said. 

Miles and his mom say it makes a difference. 

"I've seen somebody take out the toothbrush and brush their teeth right away."

The 'Miles to Go' event takes place on Saturday at Bloomingdale's at the Mall at Millenia.

Charity shopping takes place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

The fashion show is at 1 p.m. and children's activities take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
