— A pint-sized Dayton superhero has more than 1,700 reasons to say “thanks.”
New Carlisle’s Collin Schaefer sought to bring in 1,000 handmade Christmas cards for children being treated at Dayton Children’s Hospital and collected 1,711 instead.

During his first campaign last year, he aimed for 200 and collected 800 cards from the community instead.
The 7-year-old member of Cub Scout Pack 338 thanks the community in the video above.
His project is an offshoot of the Pack’s annual toy drive.
Collin’s mom, Cathi, says he has a kind heart and wanted to put smiles on the faces of the kids at the hospital.
When we first told you about this year’s project on Dec. 13, Collin had collected 400 cards.
This year’s haul of cards included ones from as far away as Alaska.
Way to go, Collin.
