(WPMI/NBC News) An Alabama 4-year-old is helping feed the homeless in his hometown.
Austin Perine decided to spend his allowance money on food for the homeless living in Prichard after a conversation with his dad, Terance.
Terance Perine says the idea was sparked while watching Animal Planet on TV. Austin asked his dad why a mother panda left her cubs alone.
