For most kids, running a lemonade stand means earning a little loose change to spend at the neighbourhood ice cream shop. But that’s not the case for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s youngest volunteer fundraiser.
Haimish Hunter is at it again, raising money to help aid the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation team Back the Build for a new hospital.
This year, the 8-year-old, with help from Mom, Hilary Fennell, set up a lemonade stand outside of their Bloomfield home on Thursday, August 15. The young entrepreneur spent three hours selling summer’s most refreshing beverage and raised $143.25 for Back the Build.
“Haimish is the youngest donor in our database. Our Foundation team, including Haimish’s Eema, Monica Alyea, is proud of the philanthropic zest Haimish is demonstrating, giving back to our hospital and community,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “Whether it was a couple of dollars or a larger bill donated for a glass of lemonade, all will help support the Foundation get closer to our goal of building a new hospital for the County.”
This is Haimish’s second gift to the Back the Build campaign. His first gift was in 2017 when he donated $42 after collecting spare change along the Milford Fair parade route.
Haimish and his family would like to thank all the patrons who supported Haimish’s lemon-aid stand.
