When he is not bowling a few frames with his friends from the Downriver Panthers, Dillon Marshall Alley is showing the world that autism is not going to stop him from doing the community service projects he loves.

Dillon: I did a cereal drive for kids that didn’t have breakfast in the morning or food to eat so I collected 1600 boxes.

Mitch: Of cereal?

Dillon: Yes

Mitch: Now what made you think of doing that for other children?

Dillon: I like helping people out.

Mitch: Why?

Dillon: Because I think that other kids can do it they can make a difference.

Dillon has been making a difference with each new project he takes on. He has collected toys for the Lincoln Park Goodfellows, raised money for area special needs organizations and recently he organized a blanket and sock drive for homeless Veterans.

Dillon: They have done a lot for us. Fought for our country help people out so I help them out. It made me feel good.

And to continue to honor the Veterans, this Memorial Day Dillon is hosting a food drive and will be riding in the Lincoln Park Memorial Day Parade.

Mitch: Have you ever been in a parade before?

Dillon: No

Mitch: You know you have to practice this because it doesn’t come naturally. You got to do it for a long time.

Dillon (over Mitch): Yeah…Yeah…Yeah

Mitch: And what would you like people to learn from your efforts?

Dillon: If they see me doing it maybe they will do it. I feel good I feel good helping people it makes me feel good inside.
