TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – A little boy is making a difference in the community after hosting a fundraiser by selling hot chocolate.

Max Titkemeier, 9, from Toledo, set up a hot chocolate stand outside his home on Saturday, January 22, 2021.

Max is no stranger to organizing fundraisers. He has set up several lemonade and hot chocolate stands in the past to benefit the families of Toledo Police Officer Brandon Stalker and Officer Anthony Dia, who were both killed in the line of duty. .

“The kid is amazing,” said chef George Kral. “Whenever something happens it’s sad, this kid does something to warm our hearts.”

In four hours, Max helped raise a total of $900, according to his mother, Lisa Titkemeier.

Proceeds were shared and donated to the Toledo Police Patrolman’s Association and Lucas County Canine Care and Control.

When asked why he chose to donate to these two organizations, Max replied, “Because Brandon and Anthony were both animal lovers.”

Max also collected pet food and toys that were donated to Lucas County Canine Care and Control.
