|Meredith Arnold and Tony Gordon|
Meredith Arnold was recognized as the youngest donor to the Lourdes Foundation. Through the 12-year-old's efforts of a lemonade stand over the summer, she raised $60 that she wanted to donate to the hospital to help purchase games for children waiting in Our Lady of Lourdes' surgery and emergency room waiting areas. A fellow Lourdes Foundation supporter, Tony Gordon, heard about Meredith’s work and matched her donation.
Meredith’s lemonade stand is not the first time the youth has celebrated the spirit of giving — she has donated to FoodNet and the Boys and Girls Clubs with her family, but the lemonade stand was a initiative she set out to see through on her own. Congratulations, Meredith, on your achievement and efforts to help the Lourdes Foundation continue its mission.
