9-Year-Old Hero Helps Feed And Clothe Detroit’s Homeless

Sometimes, we get too caught up with our daily routines to pay much attention to people other than our friends and family members. But for 9-year-old Ewan Baker Drum, thinking about others is integral to his daily routine. He gets up each and every morning hoping he can make a difference in the lives of Detroit’s less fortunate.

To those who know him, Ewan goes by “Super Ewan.” The moniker is well-deserved, not just because he wears a red cape, but because of his mission: once a month, he and his “Super Volunteers” distribute food, clothing, and basic necessities to the homeless — or Ewan’s “Superfriends,” as he likes to call them.

Ewan’s passion for helping the less fortunate started as early as when he was in the third grade, when he drew out a special wish: that there would be no more homeless people in the train station. He expressed his desire to dress up like a superhero and help them, once he was a teenager. But his mom told him that he didn’t need to wait to be older to help others. And thus, Super Ewan, Inc. was born,

Ewan’s mission continues to touch hundred of lives, whether it’s through his Super Volunteers who help him, the homeless who benefit from the donations, or through the people who admire him and spread the word about his mission.
