Eight-year-old Fiona Klein, and her 10-year-old sister, Ani are learning the importance of giving at a young age.
For the last few years, their Town of Tonawanda family has held a charitable lemonade stand.
“You can raise money for things that are important to us, right?,” asked the girls’ mother, Marney.
Marney said last year they raised more than $700 selling lemonade and donated it to the western New York chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
“We got so many people. We are only going to have it from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. But, people kept coming,” Marney said.
But, because of COVID-19, they’ve decided to cancel it this year.
“I don’t really know and can’t fathom how we can sell lemonade with a mask on and somebody wants to drink it,” Marney explained.
Marney said the girls are disappointed but they get it. They’re now learning an important lesson in understanding.
