“Lemonade and Cookies For Sale!”

Three young friends in Groton wanted to help others in their community and with some assistance from their families they held three lemonade stands to raise money for Loaves & Fishes and to generate interest in the Groton Neighborhood Food Project.

The girls made colorful posters which they displayed in their neighborhoods to attract customers. They were surprised by how many people stopped to purchase lemonade and cookies. Once the customers learned how the girls were going to spend the proceeds, most then donated generously so that they could reach their goal. In total, the girls raised $534.00 and attracted a few new food donors! We are so proud of our young supporters.
