Meet Brendan. Brendan is a 4th-grader in Milford. Like other children his age, Brendan enjoys karate and basketball, is a member of the local cub scouts and spends much of his time playing with friends and family. But what sets Brendan apart from most children his age is his gift for giving. Last summer Brendan saw a need to help some less fortunate students in his school and sprung to action with a lemonade stand. Tomorrow, Saturday November 13th, Brendan is once again taking the initiative to assist over 70 homeless children in Milford with a hot chocolate sale in the driveway of his home at 129 Highland Street in Milford from 12pm until he runs out of supplies.
