Dozens of people were there for the ceremony - including Josh's mom - and Keith Oakes, the man that Josh helped in the parking lot.

Josh was also recognized for the good work he does all year long - collecting food for the hungry - and donating some of his own Christmas gifts to "Toys for Tots."

In addition to being recognized for his kindness, Josh also got to flip the switch on the holiday lights at the Times Union Center atrium.
