ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — With their masks on and hand sanitizer at their side, a group of children from the Grandin and Raleigh Court area set up a lemonade stand to raise money for the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center.
On Saturday, the neighborhood kids of Alberta Avenue each took shifts to sell the drinks. Parents Travis and Rebecca Hunter matched each dollar earned, totaling over $400 in donations.
“This was a great way for the children to learn responsibility, entrepreneurship, and giving back to the community,” says area resident Iris Park.
Park says the lemonade stand may return in the near future.
