Boy's lemonade stand raises $500 for kids in Texas

A 4 Year-Old from York Contributes to the Harvey Relief Effort

YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Kids who lost their bicycles in Hurricane Harvey have a friend in Maine.

Reagan Flagg is four years old and lives in York. After hearing about the natural disaster in Texas, his mom, Kassy Flagg, said Reagan came up with an idea to help other kids like him.

They set up a lemonade stand on Thursday morning to raise money to replace bikes that were ruined or washed away by the storm.

As of Friday night, Reagan raised more than $500.

Maybe it was Reagan's natural salesmanship or maybe it was sympathy for his cause. Whatever the reason, business was brisk, and his grandfather promised to match every dollar he earned.

Kassy says they'll donate the money to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund managed by the humanitarian organization, Samaritan's Purse.
