Local lemonade stand raises money for the United Way's school supply drive
FARGO N.D.—It may look like a typical lemonade stand, but it was one of the coolest places in town and it's all for a good cause.
The 6th annual 'Live United' Lemonade Stand quenched the thirst of those in the Fargo-Moorhead community.
It all started in the front yard of a child care provider and has grown in popularity ever since.
Volunteers collected $80 in their first year, with kids putting it toward their own school supplies
They've come a long way, making $5,000 just last year.
And the all the funds raised go to the United Way School Supply Drive, helping students get the supplies they need every year.
"it's important for all kids to start the school year right and this is a way for us to help them because the children here that do go to school know how important it is to have all the school supplies they need, and we have a lot of repeat customers, wonderful people out there giving a lot back to this community through this lemonade stand," said Jamie Zastoupil, Childcare provider.
The volunteers set a goal of reaching $5,000 again this year.
