ALLENDALE, S.C. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - A 6-year-old boy with a huge heart gave up his vacation to Disney World to help feed evacuees during Hurricane Dorian.
Jermaine Bell turns 7-years-old on Sept. 8 and his parents had been saving up money to take him on a dream vacation to Disney World in Orlando. The family is from Jacksonville, Florida, but his mother, Lauren, says that Jermaine wanted to spend the Labor Day week in South Carolina.
"Little did I know he had big plans," she wrote on Facebook.
Jermaine decided to use the vacation money to provide food for evacuees fleeing Hurricane Dorian. He set up a stand and handed out hot dogs, chips and soda to everyone who stopped by.
"The people that are traveling to go to other places, I wanted them to have some food to eat, so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they're going to stay at," Jermaine said.
His mother says she couldn't be more proud of how selfless Jermaine is at such a young age.
"He has a very big heart and all around caring spirit. It definitely makes it a birthday to remember for him."
Jermaine's mother says she plans on taking Jermaine to Disney World very soon.
