Kids Set Up Lemonade Stand For School

A group of first graders are helping classmates in a sour economy by selling lemonade.

Four first graders from South Greenville Elementary School spent their afternoon Wednesday by selling treats to help raise money for their school.

The eager fundraisers poured cups of homemade pink lemonade to wash down the baked chocolate chip cookies and brownies they had on display to sell to nearby neighbors.

The money they received will go toward those who are unable to afford school uniforms.

Carter Sortini says it's an idea that just popped in her head, but she had to ask mom first.

Sortini and her friends raised over 500 hundred dollars this afternoon.

    It's nice that kids are doing something positive,but then you have people like that bookkeeper who turns a positive into a negative by stealing the money.

    I would like to thank Dave Marcheskie for covering this. He came out and was great with the kids. Its about time someone like him is in the media.

    AWESOME! We can all learn from these precious young ones to have a compassionate, kind, giving heart - oh, just FYI, my grandaughter Carter is one of these precious ones with one of those sweet hearts! GOOD JOB GIRLS!

    Great job kids. But if Bev would keep her hands out of the education lottery there should be money for our schools. The system will take care of illegals;feed them, doctor them, etc. but when it comes to our own we have to struggle, and sometimes worry where our next meal will come from. What bugs the heck out of me is that the illegals work here. The DSS takes care of them, and they send their money back home. They don't even put their wages back into the economy here. What is wrong with this picture??

    Blessed is he that considerth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. - Psalm 41:1, 2 Great Job Children!

    To quote the great Dalai Lama: "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." Outstanding job kids.
