Thank you to everyone who stopped by the corner of Jolly and Cedar Streets yesterday morning to add their contributions to the Old Newsboys of Greater Lansing fund. The Old Newsboys raised over $180,000 last year and every dime collected went towards putting shoes and boots on the kids in our community who need a little help to keep their feet warm.

It was really touching to have more than one person hand me a $20 bill yesterday and tell me that Old Newsboys helped them or their kids at one point and they simply wanted to give back.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and see Joey Pants and me yesterday while were collecting funds in south Lansing and thanks to everyone who donated in other ways, either with their time or otherwise.
