ATLANTA -- We're celebrating an act of kindness by one of our younger viewers.

Back in May, we aired a story about a fundraiser for an Atlanta-based non-profit called: "Soccer In the Streets".

It serves more than two-thousand students, using sports to help at-risk kids thrive at school and at home.

A scout named Ethan Belnap from Troop 2001 in Johns Creek was watching the story, and he decided he could help.

And he did in a big way.  He began collecting used soccer gear as part of his Eagle Scout project.

Ethan, who's also a soccer player, sorted and cleaned the equipment before donating 55 bags full to Soccer in the Streets.
