A Group Of Kids In Duluth Raised Over $1,500 For The Duluth Police Foundation
One group of kids decided to spend the first part of their summer vacation doing a good deed. They set up a lemonade stand in Woodland and with their profits going to the Duluth Police Foundation. One of the kids in the group has a connection to the department, their dad is a Duluth Police Officer.
So what exactly does this foundation do? According to their website " The Duluth Police Foundation exists to create partnerships which fund and support community safety initiatives, technology, and training for the Police Department and citizens of Duluth."
The kids got busy setting up their booth on Redwing street with both pink and regular lemonade that they sold for 50 cents a glass cookies and stickers and cards for police officers as well. The kids Lainey, Brook, and Atley said to WDIO: "We want everyone to stay safe."
In all they raised $1,500 which is an awful lot of money in a very short period of time. Can you imagine as a kid raising that much money and being so kind to turn it over to an organization that helps out the community? What a great bunch of kids, I think that all of us adults can definitely take some cues from them on ways we can help to support our community!
