Chandler Reiman has one wish during this Christmas season.
The 12-year-old Grove boy wants to give to others.
So on Wednesday, Dec. 28, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., he plans to set up a hot chocolate stand in the parking lot of Grove's First Baptist Church.
For three hours, Reiman said, he plans to pass out cups of Swiss Miss hot chocolate - complete with marshmallows upon request - in order to raise funds for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
As an added bonus, he plans to also pass out copies of the Dec. 23 and Dec. 27 issue of The Grove Sun, so people have something to read with their drink.
His goal is to raise between $30 to $50, for his first effort.
Reiman decided he wanted to help others after his grandmother, Peggy Wieneke, was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer this fall. He picked St. Jude's after learning about the facility, and what it does for children.
"At first, I felt like I need to help," Reiman said. "I have a feeling if I do this, for a children's hospital, and if I [help] save kids lives, it allows them to have a future."
This is the first time Reiman, who is a homeschooled sixth grader, has undertaken a project of this type.
"I thought it would help [keep] people in the Christmas spirit," he said.
Reiman is the son of Ryan and Dana Reiman of Grove. For more information, or to make a donation, persons interested may contact him at 918-314-4522. Grove's First Baptist Church is located at 501 East 13th Street, in Grove.
