11-year-old Dylan Beall began raising money to feed veterans back in August.

He's raised nearly $3,500, and on Thursday, he donated another $500 worth of food to the "I support the 1%" pantry in Buena Vista.

The food pantry said it's one of the only food pantries in the country that provide exclusively for military members and veterans.

TV5 first brought you Beall's story back in August.

"He's just remarkable," said Judy Adams, the pantry's coordinator. "His spirit is just, you can't break the spirit of that young man. Like I said, he's my littlest patriot."

Anyone interested in donating to the "I support the 1%" food pantry can do so on their website.
