Alaina Gilbert is a young lady who saw a need and stepped up to meet it when she had her own lemonade stand recently and successfully raised $258.78 for the local humane society. Her hard work and volunteerism is responsible for purchasing 250 lbs. of dog food, 200 lbs. of cat food, 15 squeaky dog toys, 10 cat toys, 10 rope dog toys, 4 large boxes of dog bone treats. The stand actually raised $208.78 but Walmart, impressed with her efforts, donated an additional $50 gift card.
Her parents, Ryan and Angela Gilbert said, “She is so happy to do something for the animals.” Alaina enjoyed help from buddies William and Rich Davis.
