Boy uses lemonade stand to raise money for kids in need

Like many kids have done before him, five-year-old Landry Knox of Weston, Wisconsin, set up a lemonade stand.

His stand was successful, as he earned $120….. but instead of keeping the money, Landry decided to give it back to his community.

He donated all of his earnings to a charity group called Blessings in a Backpack, which provides two breakfast, lunch and snack items each week to make sure needy kids have food for the weekend.

The $120 that Landry donated was enough to feed one student for more than a year.

And, on top of his cash donation, Landry also hung around and helped volunteers stuff the bags that were given to the kids.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
