WASHINGTON (FOX News) – Amid the coronavirus pandemic, a first-grader in Gaithersburg, Maryland, used money he saved up to help those in need as a way to overcome fear with acts of love.

Cavanaugh Bell, 7, spent $600 of his own money, saved up from two birthdays and three Christmases, to purchase and package 65 “COVID-19 Carepacks” along with 31 hot meals from a local restaurant, Buca Di Beppo, to serve to senior citizens and help the local businesses impacted by being closed after Gov. Larry Hogan shut down restaurants Monday

“What’s up guys! I’m at Target,” Cavanaugh said in a video for his supporters. “Thank you for your donations, and look at all the stuff we got.”

7-year-old uses savings to send care packages to seniors.

Fox 5’s Erin Como and Tom Fitzgerald interview a very thoughtful boy from Gaithersburg.

He filled several shopping carts with food and a bottle of bleach to hand out to seniors. One responded, “Oh, thank you, sweetie!”

The 7-year-old added in another video, “Don’t forget our senior citizens. They need to eat, too.”

On top of that, he also helped feed 90 students in need on Thursday.

Cavanaugh started a non-profit called “Cool and Dope” with the mission to “eradicate all bullying and youth suicide through political and social action by his 18th birthday on Nov. 20, 2030.”

He became a philanthropist and anti-bullying activist after, at just 5 years old, he was bullied to the point of having suicidal thoughts. His mom encouraged him to counteract his experience by creating a movement to spread positivity and love.

In such a short amount of time and at a young age, he’s already accomplished so much.

He gave a TEDX Youth Talk, got the city of Gaithersburg to dedicate February 21 as Bullying Awareness Day in honor of Gabriel Taye, an 8-year-old in Ohio who committed suicide because of bullying in 2017, his county designated October as Bullying Prevention Month, and this October he hopes to lead the Anti-Bullying Rally in Washington, D.C.

2019 Novel Coronavirus, Wuhan, China

CDC EPIC EXTRA Update: Outbreak of Novel (New) Coronavirus
We understand that some people are worried about this virus and how it will impact Americans. Please read the statement below to learn more about the steps CDC is taking to investigate and stop the spread of this virus.

  CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (termed “2019-nCoV”) that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand. Chinese health officials have reported hundreds of infections with 2019-nCoV in China, including outside of Hubei Province. A number of countries, including the United States, have been actively screening incoming travelers from Wuhan. Human infections with 2019-nCoV have been confirmed in other countries, including the United States. The United States announced their first infection with 2019-nCoV detected in a traveler returning from Wuhan on January 21, 2020.

Early on, many of the patients in the outbreak in Wuhan, China reportedly had some link to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients reportedly have not had exposure to animal markets. Investigations are ongoing to learn more, but person-to-person spread of 2019-nCoV is occurring. Some viruses are highly contagious (like measles), while other viruses are less so. It’s not clear yet how easily 2019-nCoV spreads from person-to-person. It’s important to know this in order to better assess the risk posed by this virus, and our investigation is ongoing. While CDC considers this a serious public health concern, based on current information, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV to the general American public is considered low at this time. Nevertheless, CDC is taking proactive preparedness precautions.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.
