Michigan girl raises funds for veterans using lemonade stand

Samantha Stricker, an 11 -year-old from Saginaw Township, in Michigan, is running a lemonade stand in her township for the third year in a row to raise money for veterans.

Samanthas mother, Kelly, told WSGW radio that even though she helped her daughter build the lemonade and the stand, the event was all Samanthas idea.

During her first two years running the lemonade stand, Samantha raised $250 for veterans. But this year, shes upped her expectations, and defined a goal of $500.

The proceeds from Samanthas lemonade stand will be used to buy blankets and care products for patients at the Aleda E. Lutz Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Saginaw, WSGW reported.

Her lemonade stand, planted in front of American Legion Post 439 in Saginaw, is open for business until 5 p. m. on July 15.
