New Jersey Boy Starts Lemonade Stand In Hopes Of Buying Hearing Aids

Posted: Updated:
GLOUCESTER CITY, N.J. -

A 9-year-old New Jersey boy is making quite a name for himself in his community because of his very profitable lemonade stand.

The money is for him, but he’s not saving up for a new video game, instead, he launched a lemonade stand in hopes of raising enough money to buy new hearing aids.

Logan Phelps has been wearing hearing aids since he was 5-year-old and they need to be replaced. The hearing aids are expensive, costing 3-6 thousand dollars, and insurance only covers a very small amount.

Logan is one of five children and his family’s finances are tight, so Logan decided to take matters into his own hands.

"I really didn't expect this many people to come,” he said.

Turns out, people are coming out in large numbers, by car, on foot, on skateboards, scooters, and even the UPS driver has stopped by for a cup.

"I expected probably 20 dollars a day, then it went up,” said Logan.

Thanks to the generosity of friends, neighbors and perfect strangers, who heard about Logan’s efforts to raise money for a new pair of hearing aids.

Logan’s mother, Kim, thought it would take at least a year to raise the much needed money.

"We started selling lemonade and then it got bigger and more people started to ask if they could come, and you know, every day it's getting bigger and bigger," she said.

The police department chipped in, along with the fire department and the Rolling Badges Motorcycle Club who stopped by with a check for $525.

"And of course like every time I’m crying and tearing up,” his mother said."I really never thought this was going to happen. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart."

The family has an appointment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia next month to get fitted for the hearing aids and Logan can't wait.

"It would mean a lot because without these hearing aids I wouldn't be able to hear anything. And I just like to hear,” he said.

Between his lemonade stand and donations, Logan has raised close to $4,000. If there's any money left over, the family plans to pay it forward. They want to help a little girl in a nearby community that needs a hand paying for her hearing aids as well.
