Big Spring Boy Donating Lemonade Stand Money to Isaiah 58

BIG SPRING - "He's making the lemonade, I'm making the chocolate chip cookies," Stephanie Henry, the generous boy's mother, said.

Eight-year-old Logan Henry is bound and determined to help his local Big Spring community in any way possible and there's nothing like a good old-fashion lemonade stand. Instead of saving up for a bicycle or a new toy, Logan has decided to donate all of the money to a local food bank, Isaiah 58.

"Some kids at my school don't get to have food, supper or a snack after school because they don't have money," Logan said.

When Logan's mom told him that last year, he got straight to work. Like any entrepreneur, he advertised. He talked to the local newspapers, radio stations and even made a Facebook.

"We had a huge turnout, $550 was raised and it was enough to buy 1,900 pounds worth of food," Stephanie said.

This year, Logan's goal is to double that amount. But don't worry, neither inflation nor the oil boom have affected this lemonade stand.

"It's only a donation," Logan said.

"I'm so proud of him, he's got a huge heart. He's always been a big helper," Stephanie said.

The lemonade stand will be open Saturday, August second from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Isaiah 58 in Big Spring.
