NEWTON, Iowa — A 10-year-old boy in Newton has completed his mission to raise thousands of dollars for people in a Zambian village.
Channel 13 first told you about River Miller’s Heavenly Hot Dogs stand in June. Miller was serving up an adventurous menu to help raise money to build a well for a community in Zambia.
This week, River reached his goal, raising more than $4,000 for the well. He even raised an extra $500 to feed another nearby village for a month.
His mother, Pastor Janelle Miller of Christian Life Church, plans to take some of the money raised on a mission trip to Zambia.
