Ben is a student at Pepper Ridge Elementary. In 2019, when Ben was in Kindergarten, he was planning a lemonade 🍋 stand to make some money. After a visit to the Humane Society 🐾 that week, he saw that some of the cat 🐱 enclosures didn't have toys and it broke his heart. He decided he would donate whatever money he made to them instead. He raised $220 and stayed true to his word and donated every penny. Due to Covid he took a break in 2020, then resumed in 2021. That year he raised $600. This year during Spring Break, he held his third one. The Idaho Humane Society shared it on their page, then some radio stations picked it up as well. Ben had tons of visitors from all over and he raised $1800, all of which he gladly handed over again. Ben plans on having a lemonade 🍋 stand every Spring now, just in time for "kitten season" when they need supplies the most.
