PRESCOTT, AZ - It's "Lemon-aide" with a twist on "aide." The top selling drink in Prescott does more than refresh, it's "aiding" fire victim's families.
"We're going to donate the money to the firefighters' families and the people who lost their homes," said Kate Burk.
"It killed the firefighters and burned some homes and that's why we're doing this," explained Kyle Burk, Kate's older brother.
The kids plan to set up their lemonade stand at the Fry's off Miller Valley Road in Prescott every Wednesday and Saturday during the month of July.
As they pour out the lemonade and bring in donations, they keep busy working on signs of support for the families. Signs they encourage donors to sign and send a message.
"The notes are to the firefighter and Yarnell families and when we 're done, we're going to take the signs and put it by their houses," said Kate.
The lemonade stand was organized by Kate's mother Erin who said she wanted her kids to be part of something bigger than just watching others around them help out.
As she watches the kids work, a church hymn plays in her head.
"It's a church hymn that says 'Have I done any good in the world today? Have I helped anyone in need, have I cheered up the sad or made someone feel glad? If not I failed indeed,'" said Erin as she begins to tear up.
"I don't want my kids to fail at that, I don't want to fail at that," she added.
The kids will tally up their donations at the end of July.
