Sixth graders Calley Stephens and Kendall Prchal are on a mission. They want to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, in particular the kids who were impacted by the devastating storm in Texas and Louisiana.
 
The two girls have a goal to raise $1,000 for the Providence Orphan Care in Texas where 48 foster children were displaced due to the storm. As of Saturday afternoon, after two days of selling lemonade, the girls have already raised $675. They have received donations from Wayside Liquor, Mackenthun’s Fine Foods, the White Front. Subway is also expected to donate. 
 
People are willing to give. They said a man named Jamie McNay from Henderson who works at Seneca Foods, saw the stand and gave the girls $186 for their cause and posted it to Facebook.
 
McNay wrote, “PLEASE visit their stand RIGHT NEXT TO Casey's in Montgomery tomorrow from 10am - 6pm and buy some of the MOST DELICIOUS Lemonade and Kool-aid ANYWHERE. Donate $1 or $1,000. Let's help these young ladies make a difference for the folks in Texas.”
 
The girls’ business is booming, thanks to their cute lemonade stand, handmade signs, delicious lemonade and Kool-Aid, and their location. They are at 212 4th Street NW, the second house south of Casey’s. You can’t miss them. They’re the girls with big hearts, holding signs high, with pride in their voices as they ask people to stop for a good cause.
