Lemonade Stand For The Win!

Alan and Katie Boswell attend New Hope Community Church in Potsdam, NY. The kids’ Sunday School class (grades K-6) at New Hope sponsors Terefe, one of our kids at the Dale Center of H.O.P.E. The kids have been very diligent in earning money by doing chores, making handmade cards to sell, or tithing part of their allowance toward Terefe’s support.

Over their summer vacation, Alan and Katie ran a very successful lemonade stand in their front yard. In just one day they raised $100! They decided to split it up and send half of the money for Terefe’s monthly support, and the other half for a family gift for Terefe.

FOVC staff met with Terefe and his family, and the family decided what they wanted most was a mattress and bedding. FOVC took them to choose their new bedding and paid for it with the $50 Alan and Katie raised selling lemonade.

We are SO proud of these kids, and so thankful for their kindness and love for Terefe. If kids can sponsor, so can you! Check out our children who are still waiting to be sponsored at pwesponsorship.org.
