Little kids, big hearts
In response to the recent announcement about area food pantries needing assistance, two young children visiting family in the area decided to do a lemonade stand to raise money to help CAMAL House of Cuero.
The children, Declan Webster, age four-and-a-half and his sister, Ryan Mary Webster, set up a lemonade stand on Monday, May 4 with a sign proudly announcing their cause at Gloria Griffin’s home.
“We wanted to help people who didn’t have enough food,” said Ryan Mar during a video interview.
They collected $86. 86 to go to the food pantry fund. When they meet with Cuero National Bank Sr. Vice President and Branch Manager, David Kleinecke and were told Cuero Community Foundation would match their donation for a total of $173.92, they were excited.
The Covid-19 epidemic has created a crisis for many in DeWitt and the neighboring counties. To help local folks through these difficult times, the Cuero Community Foundation (CCF) is supporting CAMAL (Cuero Area Ministerial Alliance) House of Cuero, Yorktown Assistance Ministries (YAM) and Yoakum’s First Baptist Food Pantry by creating a matching fund to ensure families are able to put food on their tables.
