12 year old recognized as the youngest donor to the Lourdes Foundation


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.
