10 year old boy raises money for hurricane relief

BANGOR - Texas is more than two thousand miles from Burnham, Maine, but one young man is making it his mission to help out.

Dillon Whitney, 10, spent this past weekend at the Clinton Lions Agricultural Fair.

 

But rather than running around with the other kids his age he spent his time selling lemonade to raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims.

 

Monday he presented his earnings to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief fund.

 

Whitney said "Just to help people because they don't have the same things we do. We don't have much bad weather. And they get affected by other stuff."

 

In addition to selling lemonade Whitney sold water, fudge, fruit and cookies. He walked up and down the streets with his refreshments in a wagon and was able to raise a whopping $400!
