Aberdeen Youngster Raises Money for Animal Group
It was a solidly summer idea with a good-hearted twist for Eva Roukema Thursday afternoon.
The young girl decided to set up a stand outside her grandmother's downtown Aberdeen storefront and offer lemonade and cookies to passers by, hoping to raise a bit of money for Animal Advocates of Moore County.
There, outside Aldena Frye Floral Design on 120 W. Main St., from 1-3 p.m., she gave out the refreshments for donations and, in turn, raised $300 for Animal Advocates. Historic Aberdeen shop owners and patrons alike came by to support the local Animal Advocates of Moore County (AAMC) chapter that helps reduce the number of dogs and cats that are euthanized through its low cost spay and neuter program, adoption services, and countywide educational programs.
Jan Standing, AAMC treasurer, was on hand to answer questions and brought 3 kittens that are still in need of a good home.
