Local boy donates lemonade stand money to Harvey relief

Posted: Updated:

The seven year old boy who raised money for victims of Hurricane Harvey presented his donation to Mayor Joe McComb.

Nathaniel Villarreal raised $297.76 selling lemonade and iced tea in front of Cavender's Boot City.

During Tuesday's city council meeting, Villarreal presented M McComb with the money he collected. Shortly afterward, Joe McComb surprised the Kolda Elementary School student with a backpack full of goodies and a cap. Villarreal said, "I was pretty excited. I didn't know he had a surprise and he said "This is a sweet little boy."

Mayor McComb told Nathaniel his donation will go to the "Mayor's Hurricane Harvey Fund". His donation now brings the fund to more than $600,000.

Meanwhile, Nathaniel says he looks forward to raising money for other causes.
