Ewan Baker Drum, 10, is a real-life superhero. He helps people who are homeless in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan—while wearing a cape! As his alter ego “Super Ewan,” he holds charity drives with his family where they collect food, clothing, and household items. Then they donate these things to people who need them at local homeless shelters, community centers, and parks.
Ewan began his work when he was 7. He was recently rewarded for his efforts. In May 2017, Super Ewan received a Prudential Spirit of Community Award in Washington, D.C. “I look at everyone who doesn’t have food or a place to live, and I just really want to help them,” he says.
