ROCHESTER, Minn. – A lemonade stand has been around for more than a decade, and it helps support a worthy cause.
Jacob Curry started it when he was just six years old.
Over the years, he’s raised more than $12,000. He gives the proceeds to Family Promise Rochester, an organization that helps homeless families in the community.
“It evolved into something a lot bigger than I thought it ever would which is awesome,” Curry said. “I have no complaints about that, but it's been a lot of fun over the years. I've loved doing this.”
Curry is off to college next fall, and he hopes his effort is an example for others to give back.
“I want it to kinda like spread and grow,” Curry said. “Whether the lemonade itself ends up not going on, which I obviously hope it will because I spent so much time and effort into this. But if other people start helping the community, that's great too.”
