It’s still below freezing in Kokomo, Indiana, but business was booming at six-year-old Malachi Fronczak’s lemonade stand. He started the stand three years ago and insisted that all police officers, firemen, and first responders get free cups. And now he’s selling the sweet stuff to raise money for the family of a local sheriff deputy who was recently killed in the line of duty.
Malachi’s dad says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up, and he’s excited to sell lemonade because this is how he can serve and help others right now. And since last week, the kid has raised more than $7,000 for the family of Deputy Jacob Pickett.
"Just seeing his heart, and how it affects others, is amazing," Malachi's dad says. "He has taught me to look for opportunities around us to help others and show love."
