NORFOLK, Neb. — A kid in northeast Nebraska raises money for a local police department.

On Friday, Norfolkians could find James Kimes on his lawn serving lemonade and water to passers-by for a dollar a bottle.

Kimes raises money for the Norfolk Police Division.

He told News Channel Nebraska why he decided to fundraise for the NPD.

“They help people from bad people,” Kimes said. “They help people not to steal and they keep our community safe. We have to respect them because they protect us from bad people.”

He sold hundreds of bottles of lemonade and water and raised over $800 on Friday afternoon.

The lemonade stand has become a family tradition as Kimes’ older sister ran her own lemonade stand when she was her age and her younger sister plans to run her stand when she is older.
