WILMINGTON, N.C. – A 10-year-old wants kids to go back to school with brand news shoes, so he asked for donations for his birthday instead of gifts.

For the past 3 years, Gunner Robinson has collected children’s shoes for his August 15 birthday to help those who can’t afford new sneakers for the beginning of the school year.

So far, he’s collected and distributed 600 news pairs of shoes, WWAY reports.

“I’ve always got shoes, like new shoes for school. I want other kids to get them too,” said Gunner.
