"you're watching good morning iowa in hd. we are iowa." sabrina: thanksgiving is the time of year when people start looking forward to christmas and all the presents under the tree, but one little boy in alaska is taking holiday giving to the next level. " patrick, the oldest of destinee mcclung's two young sons, proudly claims none of these gifts as his own; they're presents for the community's homeless population to have. "it's for all the people, and they don't have homes," the 3-year-old explained. "and they're very cold." a few weeks ago, patrick overheard his mom in conversation with someone else. the community's homeless population was mentioned - and patrick, naturally, had questions. "patrick said, 'mama, did you say there are people who don't have houses?'" mcclung recalled. "and i said, 'yeah, you know, sometimes people just
5:23 am
patrick heard that some of the homeless population spend their nights outside in the cold, he began to cry. a video mcclung posted on her facebook page shows patrick in tears. "i don't want them to sleep on a piece of cardboard," the anchorage toddler says through sobs. mcclung says she's never seen her son react that way to anything. "he's 3, and everyone he knows has a house and has food and has toys," mcclung said. "and so it really genuinely hurt his heart to kind of realize that there are people that go without." but those tears quickly dried up when patrick learned there was a way he could help the homeless. he and his mom made signs - calling for socks, cold-weather gear, diapers, toiletries and other items - and set up boxes around town so others could donate to patrick's passion project. but at the same time, she says, we can all learn a lot from her
5:24 am
"i'm so proud of him," mcclung said. "i think a lot of us aren't looking to help. we just live our lives, we're just used to homeless people and all of the issues that are around us - it's just normal." but, she says, you don't have to be 3 years old to take action. she urges everyone to take a note from patrick - just start with what moves your heart. sabrina: that's a look at your money this morning... coming up after the break... sam's in with central iowa's most accurate forecast... but first... time for a quick look at traffic... this is i-235 at euclid...

and losing aren't two that generally go together in football.. that's why it's hard to believe last year was the first time the dutch ever won a state title. it took 26 trips to the playoffs for before it happened. and their 27th post season appearance could land them with back to back championships. " since 2013's loss to washington in the quarterfinals of the 3a playoffs-- pella has been unbeatable. they've won 27 straight games-- a streak that speaks for itself. "i've never really thought about 27 straight victories until people start talking about it. i've been trying to ignore it to be quite honest." there's one game left for the 27 seniors on pella's roster-- they're already the most decorated in school history-- but if they can get their 28th consecutive win-- they'd leave behind something bigger with their second 3a state title in a row.

"you always have a target on your back especially winning from last year but we handle that really well." it's a district 7 rivalry-- norwalk and pella-- and the dutch will tell you the dome will be a electric. "it's going to be crazy i mean you saw our crowd last year in the dome and even when we were watching the norwalk game against sb-l their crowd was outstanding you know they called us out so you know we're ready
