When he was only five, Evan Greenberg and his three-year-old brother Joshua started a hot cocoa stand in their family’s garage in New York. They donated all their profits to Oxfam and a local food pantry back then and then they switched charities and started donating to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. In the 11 years they’ve been running this cocoa stand, they’ve raised over $35,000 for their cause.
The brothers are still running their stand, which now operates in the Westchester shopping mall. And Evan, now 16 and Joshua, 14, are still working hard to run their stand and help make a difference. “It’s such a great feeling to know I can help people,” Evan explains.
“Each year, it grows,” Joshua says. It’s been an amazing dream.”
