Kids set up lemonade stand to raise money for St. Joseph Emergency Family Shelter
Lemon"ath" stand raises money for St. Joseph Shelter Expansion

Last weekend, these adorable little kids sold lemon"ath" for the St. Joseph Shelter expansion project.


Ok, so I might be a little biased since two of them are mine and the other is my nephew, Owen, who truly is quite the salesman. My three year old son, Cole, spilled more than he sold, but four month old Sammy was the real trooper!


The boys encouraged people to buy some "lemon'ath'" all morning during a recent garage sale that we had. They raised $40 for, as Cole would explain, "the people and kids without homes."


This was a great service project for the little boys to begin learning how to share their earnings with others-- a somewhat confusing lesson for a three year old, but a very valuable one for all ages!



During the month of August, Catholic Charities’ staff and committee members are "Blogging the Build". Follow our blog for updates on the expansion of St. Joseph Emergency Family Shelter. Save to


Now those are some cute kids! What a great life lesson!
