Five young children recently raised $120 for the African drought and famine relief with a roadside lemonade stand.
The children sat out on the sidewalk of Foster Way in the hot sun for three hours and sold lemonade and cherries to passersby, says Leanne Korving, proud mother of Emily and Aidan Korving, who set up the stand with Matthew Hufty, Regan Miciuk, and Jacob Hufty.
“They proudly raised $120!,” Korving says.
“Not only are we proud of our children for having their hearts in the right place, but we’re also proud of how our community supports kids with a cause,” Korvig says.
“When asked if the Real Canadian Superstore would like to donate a few cans of frozen lemonade to their cause, they went above and beyond our expectations and offered 20 cans.
“Although it was a hot day and there weren’t that many cans on the shelf, they gave us all 14 cans they had left.
“It’s very touching to see a local business get behind a worthy cause and worthy of mention.”
