Kids Lemonade Stand Proceeds go to Patient Party at Children’s Hospital, Books Honoring Teacher
By MJ Vieweg, Staff Writer
Two young sisters turned to StartASnowball.org for help with their lemonade stand start-up costs. The two sisters, Mylee (6) and Maggie (7) Kervin received a grant for $100.00.
“The grant allowed us to purchase the items necessary to run the lemonade stand,” said the girls’ mother, Kim Kervin.
Initially, the girls wanted to raise money for laminated paper doll characters of the Disney movie “Frozen” to give to patients at “Frozen”-themed party at the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama last July. “We were able to raise more than $900 the summer “Frozen” party,” Kervin said.
Mylee and Maggie’s Lemons to Lemonade Stand raised about $1000 to purchase books for a local school. The book donation is in honor of one of the school’s teachers who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
“Everyone is very supportive and impressed that two young children are ‘running the show’,” said Kervin.
Just because summer is over, that does not mean Mylee and Maggie have closed down the stand. The girls plan to continue to raise money throughout the year by selling cider and hot chocolate during the winter.
