Lemonade stand raises funds for youth shelter in Swift Current, Aug. 18, 2016

Written by 

Three young Swift Current residents raised a total of $564.34 for Dorie’s House, an emergency shelter for homeless youth in southwest Saskatchewan, when they set up a lemonade stand at the site where the building is currently under construction, Aug. 18. The initiative was the result of a desire by nine-year-old Dani Meyer to do something to collect money for Dorie’s House. She was assisted by Dylan (9) and Alexander (11) Westbury, the grandchildren of Doreen (Dorie) Westbury, who passed away last year. The shelter’s name is a recognition of Dorie’s lifelong passion for children.
