Wellington El Student Raises Money For The Bahamas

One day on the way home from Wellington Elementary School, Landon Espenscheid and his family were listening to the KVJ radio show. The show announced that it was raising money for the Bahamas. That is when Landon decided to raise money by doing a lemonade stand. So, the next day, Landon, his sisters and two friends set up a lemonade stand in his neighborhood. Landon flagged down cars and asked them to buy lemonade and cookies to support the Bahamas. Even though it rained, he stayed out there until 7 p.m. and raised $308. The next day, he went to the KVJ show to deliver the money. The station was so appreciative with his $308 — it put the show at over $150,000 raised.
