11-year-old Jonathan Werner has only been a boy scout for nine months.

But he takes his service projects seriously.

Through popcorn sale money, Jonathan was able to buy gifts for every foster child in two counties.

"I adopted all the foster care kids in Kanabec County and Isanti County for Christmas," he told KARE11.

It's a need that's close to his heart.

"My dad spent 14 years in foster care and based upon stories that he had being in foster care, it doesn't really sound like they had much of a Christmas," Jonathan said.
