BEVERLY, OH (WTAP) – Do you remember your 8th birthday? Chances are it wasn’t like the birthday party these two Warren cousins had recently.
Silas Stephan and Koby Hall received a shipload of cash for their birthday last weekend. But the money wasn’t for her. It was for the Beverly Waterford Rescue Team.
“We made a decision to donate to the rescue team to help our community,” said Koby.
The boys presented their $ 300 today to Debbie Miller and Anna Offemberger from the rescue team. Both boys say they are shocked at the amount they have raised.
“After we counted all the money… I started crying. It was amazing, it was amazing, ”said Silas.
“It was so incredible,” Koby repeated.
And the team was overjoyed to receive the money.
“I was speechless because you don’t see the little guys that way,” said Miller.
“To know that we have made a difference any more than they are. But that’s what we do in a small town. This community is lucky, we are lucky to be here as a group, where everyone is so interested. “
Miller says they will notify the boys as soon as they know what the money will be used for. She says they’re also running a fundraiser for the Beverly Fire Department. They sell raffle tickets for a four-wheeler and an ATV in the department. The raffle winners will be announced on Sunday, August 22nd at the Waterford Fair.
