Four years ago, while leaving for the Kentucky Derby, the Huscroft’s first heard the story of thoroughbred racing champion Afleet Alex and his connection to a little girl named Alex Scott. Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004) was the creator of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. When Alex was only 4-years-old, she voiced a simple wish, she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer.

Everyday I see people in need, they are walking down the street, there are 2 and 3 families living in one house. Families of 5 and 6 living in one bedroom apartments, there are no jobs, life is hard. I am not rich nor is my family, however if we have a dollar or $5 we help someone. It’s just how it should be love your neighbor. How many paychecks are you from, hungry, cold, or homeless? Think about it ½ of Americans are only a few paychecks from just that so we have to help when you can.

This is story is about Zach and Thomas Eller's volunteer work: We have always loved animals and have gotten dog food for our birthdays instead of presents. We started volunteering for a pet rescue organization and wanted to do more, so we baked the dogs some biscuits. We sold them at the pet adoptions and gave the money to help with fostering expenses. From there, our business grew and we have been able to donate almost $8,000. to pet rescue.
