Families across The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command’s service area. Twenty-one other stands participated in the girls’ call to action.

“Every year that we’ve had this Lemon-Aid stand, parents have approached my husband Adam and me and said, ‘How did you teach your daughters these really great selfless and loving skills?’” Kellea Hendrian, Grace and June’s mom, said in a press release. “After thinking about that question, we decided to invite the community to join us by hosting other lemonade stands throughout The Salvation Army’s service area, so other children can experience what it’s like to give back to those in need.”
