6-year-old holds lemonade stand fundraiser to end student lunch debt in CDA

KREM 2's Dave Somers goes to a 6-year-old's lemonade stand in Coeur d'Alene because she is donating all her money to help pay off the CDA school lunch debt.

COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO — A second-grader at Hayden Meadows Elementary School has a goal to raise money to help end outstanding school lunch debts of families in the Coeur d'Alene School District. 

How?  Her “Lemonade 4 Lunch” lemonade stand.

This is not her first lemonade stand.  Amiah, 6, raised more than 40 dollars at her first lemonade stand.  Amiah's mom said her daughter had so much fun, she wanted to keep doing it.  

CDA Schools posted on Facebook and said Amiah's fundraising efforts for her first lemonade stand was enough to pay off the debt for all reduced-price lunch students at her elementary school, Ramsey Elementary and Dalton Elementary.

“I’m raising money to help pay off the student lunch bill for Coeur d’Alene Public Schools,” Amiah said.



Her lemonade stand is near Honeysuckle Beach on Honeysuckle Avenue at Forest Hills and she plans to be there Saturday afternoon as well as Sunday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 7p.m.

Amiah’s mom said they plan on delivering donations to CDA nutritional services Monday.  Amiah is also fundraising through a GoFundMe account that can be found here.
