ARMOUR — It doesn’t take much to make a difference. That’s what Bill Dillon, of Armour, told his 7-year-old granddaughter Ava DeWaard when she wanted to start a lemonade stand.
This Saturday, DeWaard and a few of her friends will run a lemonade stand outside Krull’s Market in Armour and all proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
“I just want kids to realize they can do things, even at 7 years old, to help veterans and make a change,” Dillon said.
The Wounded Warrior Project helps raise awareness for the needs of injured service members. The mission of the project “is to honor and empower wounded warriors,” according to its website.
Dillon helped DeWaard come up with the idea when they were discussing veterans during Memorial Day.
DeWaard will sell lemonade from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Her stand will be hard to miss. The Wounded Warrior Project office in Sioux Falls sent her banners and fliers to advertise and dress it up.
“Who knows? Maybe this will start something that will grow,” Dillon said.
