Natalie & Lilah Nutting are hosting a Lemonade Stand Fundraiser to raise money for the Des Moines Police Foundation TODAY – Monday, Aug. 15th – from 1-4 p.m. at 20819 4th Ave S., Des Moines, 98198 (map below).
They hope the funds will be used for the Des Moines Police Foundation Shop with a Cop Event in December.
Here’s a video of the girls pitching the idea to the Des Moines City Council on Aug. 11, 2016:
The girls started off their summer with a ‘Summer Bucket List’ of items they wanted to accomplish. One item on the list was having a Lemonade Stand to support a local charity. The girls then made a list of the local charities they would like to support and then narrowed it down to the Des Moines Food Bank, Des Moines Legacy Foundation and the Des Moines Police Foundation.
Their final decision was the Des Moines Police Foundation as they recalled being able to attend the Shop with a Cop Event last year and loved helping out at the event so much they wanted to see how they could help this year!
The Des Moines Police Foundation was established in 2014 to raise awareness and provide recognition and support of the Des Moines Police Department by receiving and administering funds exclusively for charitable, scientific, or educational purposes, without pecuniary gain or profit (either direct or indirect) to its members, all within the meaning of Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Law.
Both girls attend North Hill Elementary School in Des Moines. Natalie is 9 and will be entering the 4th grade and Lilah is 8 and will be entering the 3rd grade.
Their father, Jeremy Nutting, serves on the De Moines City Council and their mother, Yvonne Nutting, serves on both the Des Moines Legacy Foundation Board, the Des Moines Police Foundation Board and is an extremely active member in the North Hill Elementary School PTSA where she served the last two years as their President.
