DALLAS – Kids are pulling together to show support for their officers and their communities in the wake of a deadly ambush on officers in Dallas.
WFAA reports a young boy named Charlie Argo in Burleson, Texas opened a lemonade stand to help police officers. His neighbors donated lemonade and cookies and together they managed to raise more than $2,400.
All the proceeds will benefit the Russ Martin Listeners Foundation. The foundation supports families in the Dallas / Fort Worth area who lost loved ones in the line of duty.
In Rowlett, Texas, a group of kids sold Kool-Aid and brownies in their neighborhood for two days, raising a total of $65 for the Russ Martin Listeners Foundation.
Kids in other cities in Texas, including Keller, Austin, and Bexar also opened lemonade stands and used the money to support their officers.
