Local kids serve up summer treats to raise money for United Way

"It makes me feel really good that we're doing this for those...and yea to help them out a little bit," said 10 year old Ella Jaroszewski.

Ella was among about a dozen motivated and caring children who gathered in South Fargo Thursday evening to sell lemonade and other tasty treats.

All the proceeds went to the United Way school supply drive to help other kids who are in need of school supplies.

Jamie Zastoupil operates Wiggles and Giggles Child care and has helped organize the lemonade stand for the past seven years.

She says it has become a tradition over the years and is a great way of keeping kids engaged in caring about others.

"You know, it's great that these kids keep coming back every year to do this. To want to give back to our community and every year they set their goals a little higher. Last year we raised almost, over $4,000," said Zastoupil.

As of Thursday night they raised $2700 for United Ways school supply program.
