A crumb from Buffalo, New York

When Antonio Gwynn, Jr. saw the damage from protests in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, he grabbed a broom and some trash bags and began cleaning the streets himself. He's an 18-year-old high school senior, and he knew that Bailey Avenue was covered with glass and garbage, and he knew that people needed to use that street in the morning to get to work. So he started at 2 a.m.

When word spread about how Gwynn single-handedly took action, many were grateful to him. Matt Block decided to give Gwynn his 2004 Mustang convertible. Local businessman Bob Briceland donated a year of car insurance through his agency. After high school, Gwynn planned to go to trade school while saving for college. Medaille College in Buffalo offered him a full scholarship, where he plans to start studying business this fall. He hopes to eventually open a cleaning business. And his already has a long history of kindness. He's a member of Kappa Phi, where he enjoys doing community service and helping out at churches.
