An 11-year-old is helping God’s Pit Crew with its largest disaster relief project ever.
Silas Zeidler, a junior volunteer for the Danville-based nonprofit relief organization, will again set up his “LemonAID” stand. Zeidler has collected $15,000 so far for previous response efforts including Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and the devastating flooding here in Danville in 2018.
This time he’s raising money for God’s Pit Crew’s biggest endeavor yet: to rebuild a school in Moffett, Oklahoma, that was destroyed in May by flooding.
Zeidler plans to operate his stand — also called Juicing For Jesus — from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20 in front of Zinc Total Salon at 308 Craghead St. in Downtown Danville.
He’s offering a free glass of his family’s recipe of ice cold, sweet and tart homemade lemonade. All donations will benefit God’s Pit Crew’s work to rebuild the Oklahoma church.
Donations also may be made online at godspitcrew.org: click “make a donation” then choose “Juicing For Jesus” in the designated drop-down box or type “LemonAID” in the special instructions.
