Fairfax County Boy Brings Joy To Neighborhood Through Paper Planes

Zachary Holden, a 9-year-old boy in Fairfax County, Virginia, is bringing a smile to his neighbors’ faces during this tragic pandemic. He’s been giving away paper airplanes — hundreds of them — cleaning up his community, helping others with yard work, and volunteering for school activities.

Zachary Holden has been busy during the pandemic, bringing smiles to his Fairfax neighbors

According to wtop.com, “Holden started giving out paper planes because the coronavirus shut down his lemonade stand, and, “it’s something that kept me entertained during the virus,” he told. The paper airplanes gave his neighbors something to smile about. Holden’s reasoning behind the freebies is simple and pandemic-pragmatic: He said it was a nice thing to do and, if it cost money, people might have to get within 6 feet to pay.”

As per wtop.com, “He’s also inspiring other kids in his neighborhood to contribute: They’re giving out free, homemade slime. Holden doesn’t have plans for any new ventures yet because he’s in school, but that hasn’t stopped him from helping out there, too, by participating in meetings, greeting classmates, setting up for activities, and helping get the activities ready — one of his favorites so far has been breaking open geodes.”
