Youth with local ties raises funds for animal shelter


Adam’s Lemonade extends a warm thank-you to everyone that helped make Lemonade Day 2017 a success.

Adam Castle set up shop on the corner of South Range and Del Orleans Avenue in the DSLD Homes parking lot in Denham Springs, Louisiana, on May 6 in hopes of raising $150 for the Denham Springs Animal Shelter.

With the support of the Denham Springs community, he raised $300-plus with donations continuing to come in. Adam intends on using his profits to purchase needed items including dog and cat food, bleach, antibacterial soap, shampoo and maybe even a doghouse or two. If anyone would like more information on donating, contact the animal shelter directly at 225-664-4472.

A special thanks to DSLD Homes for the use of its parking lot and kitchen, Michelle at Classic Hits 103.3 and Rachel at the Denham Springs Animal Shelter.

Adam’s favorite Bible verse and the motivation for his lemonade stand is 2 Corinthians 9:7, “God loves a cheerful giver.”

Adam just completed first grade at South Live Oak Elementary in Denham Springs.

He is the son of Travis and Alli Castle of Watson, Louisiana; and grandson of Margaret Everett and Jimmie Totman of Walker, Louisiana, Tim and Nora Tindall of Eupora, and Leigh Anne and Andy Grass of Oceanside, California.
