HARRISBURG -- Two Harrisburg brothers pooled their resources recently with their goal of making the holidays a little brighter for other area children.
Lance Maynor, 16, and Max Maynor, 11, decided they wanted to raise money for Harrisburg's Shop With a Cop program. The program relies on donations to provide a Christmas shopping trip for children who might not otherwise receive gifts during the holidays.
According to the boys' dad, Tom Maynor, the duo decided to sell T-shirts to raise money.
"The boys picked out the design for the shirts and We 3 Girls in Carrier Mills printed them," Tom Maynor said. "They made $5 profit from each sale and they sold 25 shirts over a five-week period."
Tom and his wife, Sadi, had pledged a dollar-for-dollar match of all proceeds from the sales. At the Nov. 16 Harrisburg City Council meeting, the Maynor brothers presented their total donation of $250 to Shop With a Cop.
"This was so important to the boys and they worked so hard on this," Tom Maynor said. "It's kids taking care of kids. The boys are already planning on next year, with a goal of $500."
