A Lafayette boy is asking for a little help after making a big difference in his community.

Oliver Perry has been raising money for first responders for three years. The Ollie Shop lemonade stand sets up in the days prior to 9/11 to raise money to feed first responders.

With the money he raises from the Ollie shop, Oliver buys pizza for local first responders and for first responders in New York.

Ollie is hoping to be featured on the Ellen Show and is looking for votes as part of Ellen and Cheerios One Million Acts of Good. Those wanting to help out Oliver can click here.

In 2016, Olliver Perry started his mission to honor first responders with a thank you lunch.

That day, over 100 first-responders were treated to a meal on September 11th thanks to his lemonade stand.
