Dallas girls raise $5,000 for police officers at local lemonade stand

A group of young girls raised $5,000 to support police officers in the city of Dallas.

Hundreds of people visited the lemonade stand outside a home in northwest Dallas. The girls sold lemonade, brownies and cookies to raise the money.

“At first it was just a lemonade stand and then what happened to the police in downtown Dallas made me realize that families out there were in need of money,” said Landry Nelon, one of the girls who organized the effort.

St. Andrew United Methodist Church also promised to match the first t$1,000 dollars the girls brought in.
