A local boy, who has given so much back to his community, is being recognized by the community for his good deeds.
James Miller-Moon is a second grader at Staunton Elementary in Clay County, and he’s a very generous young man.
Back in June, Moon participated in CASY’s “Lemonade Day,” where he managed to raise enough funds to donate to a charity of his choosing.
Here’s the best part: every year that he’s participated, he’s donated to the same charity every time, the Clay County Youth Food Delivery Program.
In the course of three years, he’s raised a total of $1,400 for that organization. And he says he plans to raise even more.
“I like giving kids some moneys so they can eat instead of leaving them starving,” said Moon. “More people should donate to this organization because kids shouldn’t be left to hunger and they should try to help their community too.”
Here’s a fun fact: the most money this young entrepreneur has raised in a single year, was back in 2017 he managed to raise over $400 from his lemonade stand and an anonymous donor doubled it to more than $800.
From all of us here at WTWO, we say congratulations James and keep up to great work!
