LENEXA, Kan. — A young Olathe boy who dreams of becoming a police officer continues to prove that you’re never too young to make a difference in your community.

Grant Schroeder, 7, along with the group Going to the Dogs presented officer Axel with his K-9 vest Wednesday.

Grant previously told FOX 4 he heard about the group and decided to put together a Kool-Aid and cookie stand to help them raise money.

In just three days, he raised  $1,200.

Going to the Dogs says vests cost about $900 each, but are vital to protect  K-9 officers.

Grants efforts to help local officers didn’t  stop with just the vest. On Friday, the 7-year-old delivered some pretty cool cookies to the Lenexa Police Department.

Lenexa officers took a picture with Grant and the cookies and tweeted out.

“This is Grant. Grant is a stud. Grant brought us awesome cookies. Grant raised $1200 for @OlathePolice K9 vest. The 🌎 needs more Grants,” the Lenexa Police Department captioned the photo.
