WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — Two kids with a mission to make a difference set up a lemonade stand in Warren Sunday.
This is the second year they’ve hosted the stand with baked goods and a raffle, too.
It started last year when 9-year-old Jacob Elser saw St. Jude’s commercials. He felt compelled to help, so he and his sister Emma opened a lemonade stand to raise money for St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
Each year, the stand is dedicated to a child who battled or is battling cancer.
“I just feel so sad for them, but I also feel like I can make a way to stop the sickness,” Jacob Elser said.
They plan to set up the stand the first weekend of every September, right around Jacob’s birthday.
