Ten-year-old Dillon Whitney, of Burnham, presented the donations he raised at his lemonade stand to the American Red Cross on September 11.
Dillon will give $400 to the Red Cross for hurricane relief at its Bangor office at 145 Exchange Street, Suite 1.
Dillon wanted to help people affected by Hurricane Harvey. So he put up a lemonade stand at the Clinton Lions Agricultural Fair parade over the weekend. He sold not only lemonade, but also water, fudge, apples, bananas and three varieties of cookies – chocolate chip, pumpkin chocolate chip and molasses.
This wasn’t Dillon’s first fundraising effort. In past years, he’s raised money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, brain aneurysm awareness and a fund that sends kids to camp and provides them with book bags and jackets.
You can make a donation by visiting redcross.org, calling 1- 800-RED CROSS or texting the word HARVEY or IRMA to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
