Two students gave money — proceeds for their lemonade stand — recently to HOT, or the Health Operations Team.
The Team is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization focusing on emergency preparedness and community health care needs by providing awareness, education, training, resources and medical support.
With the help of their parents, the girls — Shyanna Lowers and Brandi Peterson, both 11 — sponsored a lemonade stand and donated half of their proceeds to HOT.
The money goes to help HOT’s Emergency Preparedness Program which purchases and donates emergency kits to children and singles in Douglas County.
HOT presented each girl with a Certificate of Appreciation.
