Lemonade stand sweetens St. Jude’s

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Kira Hardwick, 7, of Wheaton, wanted to help the kids at St. Jude’s Hospital, so she came up with the idea to have a lemonade stand. After she talked with her mom, they went to the owner of the local grocery store Wheaton Family Market, and Owner Chad Bigham helped by donating supplies and letting Hardwick set up in front of his store. The town was supportive and came by all day with donations and to buy lemonade. Hardwick also has a fundraiser on Facebook and has donations all the way from California. Hardwick also received help from, Kylie Hardwick, 10, her big sister. Hardwick raised $267 on July 13.
