GOOD NEWS Missouri Boy, 8, Sets Up Lemonade Stand to Benefit Local Police Officers
A young boy in Missouri said that he’s hoping to make “over 12 dollars” selling lemonade in order to raise money for his local police department.
Eight-year-old Brecken Simmons, of Blue Springs, said that the street he lives on sees a lot of traffic, so he wanted to use that to his advantage this weekend.
"It's a good thing to do for the Blue Springs Police Department because they'll stop what they're doing and come out to help people if they're in serious trouble," Brecken told Fox 4 Kansas City.
Brecken said that he isn't charging anything for the lemonade -- just accepting any amount passerby can donate.
"I'm just trying to see how much I can do. I want to do over 12 -- a lot more over 12 dollars," he said.
Officer Jacoba Jacobsen told Fox 4 that Brecken's initiative will show the community that residents can come together to make a positive impact.
"I think it`s a great way to show other children in the community that they can make a difference by giving out some good will," she said.
