BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A 10-year-old resident in Maine is doing his part to help people impacted by hurricanes Harvey and Irma - raising money for the American Red Cross through his lemonade stand.

Dillon Whitney ran a lemonade stand over the weekend at the Clinton Lions Agricultural Fair. The Morning Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/2wWO6i1 ) Dillon donated all of his proceeds to the Red Cross in Bangor Monday afternoon.

Dillon set up his stand in front of his grandmother’s business at the fair and sold a variety of homemade treats, including lemonade, fudge and cookies.

Dillon says he’s been hosting fundraisers for about four years, and says plans to continue raising money as he grows older.
