At Springfield Elementary School in Palisades School District, three 2nd grade students and their families have been selling homemade lemonade throughout this school year to raise money for local charities. Gabrielle Holmes, Willa Mansfeld and Payson Godoy have been setting up their lemonade stand each month at movie nights which were held at their school. Throughout the school year, they raised more than $400 for local causes like Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue at Pennridge Animal Hospital, the Lord’s Pantry in Ottsville, Last Chance Ranch Animal Rescue in Quakertown, Children’s Hospital of Lehigh Valley and for their own school to support students who need help with school supplies or field trip fees. The girls were motivated to give back to the community having participated in their school’s work with the Positive School-Wide Behavior Program. They embraced their school’s mantra of being “respectful, responsible and kind” and took it outside of their classroom and into the community. Congratulations and best wishes to these young ladies who are leading by example in their school!
