If your nephew lives in CT, PA, NC, TX, CO, CA, AZ, WA or OR - he could volunteer with a branch of Give2TheTroops, Inc if supporting the troops is something that interests him. Even from the other states, he could do something whether it be letter writing etc. with his classmates.

I don't recall if you mentioned his age, but Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts may in interest him. They do a food drive once a year. OR heck, see if he'll volunteer locally when the USPS does their once a year food drive in May (I think it's the first Saturday).

If he sees the difference it makes and sees how others aren't deterred by volunteering their free time, it may snowball. Finding one that has other kids helping of the same age may gain him some interest as well.
