ANDERSON (WISH) – For Darrius Mitchell, giving back has become a way of life.
A junior at Anderson University and running back on the school’s football team, Mitchell has been using his own money to buy bottled water, food and personal hygiene items he then passes out to the homeless around Indianapolis.
When the WISH Patrol learned of what Mitchell was doing, we teamed up with Coca-Cola Consolidated and Kroger to give him the tools to keep making a difference in the community.
Preview the latest WISH Patrol surprise above. Catch the full surprise Wednesday on News 8 at 10 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!
Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them!
Apple Pie Tacos
9 soft street-taco shells (see note below) 2 tablespoons raw sugar 1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced 2 tablespoon raw honey 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1/4 cup water, plus more coconut whipped cream
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola. Enjoy immediately!
Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
