Trading Milkshakes for Disaster Relief

Hurricane Harvey victims received an extra helping of love today, thanks to a team of girls from Brookfield, and Elm Grove, Wis.

After seeing the devastation Hurricane Harvey delivered to Texas, they knew they could use the proceeds from their lemonade stand for a greater purpose.

“Normally, we just buy milkshakes or something,” said 5-year-old Isabel. Instead, Isabel, Emmy, Hannah and Sophia took the $600 they earned from this year’s lemonade stand to help Hurricane Harvey victims.

The girls stopped by Milwaukee’s WITI-TV, Ch. 6 today to donate their earnings to the station’s telethon benefiting the American Red Cross.

“Good people doing good things is what helps drive our mission,” said Patty Flowers, Regional CEO of Wisconsin’s American Red Cross chapter. “Not only does it warm our hearts to see children get involved with such an important cause, it makes a true difference in the lives of people who are experiencing one of the worst times of their lives.”
