But these kids arenâ€™t cashing in, theyâ€™re saving up the money to donate to Bailey Rae Dougherty, a woman from Sodus Point who is currently in the hospital.Â
On July 5, Bailey Dougherty and her mom, Tammy Shears, were involved in an ATV crash in Lewis County.Â Tammy did not survive and Bailey was hospitalized with severe leg injuries.
While she is recovering in the hospital, the neighborhood is rallying behind her.
â€œWe know her well. Our parents know her, so we thought this would be a nice idea for her, to make her happy,â€ explained Lia Buchwald as she served lemonade to neighbors.
Most are leaving hefty donations, others are dropping off more cans. So far, the group has raised nearly $2,000.
They donâ€™t plan on slowing down, keeping the lemonade stand open on Union Street throughout the week and selling baked goods at the farmerâ€™s market.
In addition, Baileyâ€™s workplace started an online fundraiserÂ andÂ a Facebook page called Believing in Bailey Rae Dougherty Â has been created to highlight other fundraisers being held by community members.
One event includes Baileyâ€™s Brews & Booze BBQ, which will be held at the Wolcott Hotel on August 3.Â
