8-year-old helps volunteer firefighters with lemonade stand

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) – A lemonade stand was set up for a good cause in Lumberport today.

5’s John Blashke has the heartwarming story.

Avery, 8, had to leave school early today to help with a lemonade stand. She had been looking to do something like this for a while.

“In fact, when I was little, I had the inspiration to make lemonade, but I couldn’t because I didn’t know where – and at what price – I would sell it – and, but now I’m older and it just came to me because when I was little I had the inspiration,” Avery said.

Eventually the opportunity presented itself and Avery was able to achieve his goal, but this is no ordinary lemonade stand.

Avery raises money for the Lumberport Volunteer Fire Department so they can get a video laryngoscope. It is a device that will help intubate people who have difficulty breathing.

Avery’s aunt, Darlene Scott, volunteers for the department. She says that with the help of her salesman, they will be able to buy one.

“Yeah, an 8-year-old girl does pretty well with sales,” Scott said.

“I mean, I’ve always wanted to sell something… But I’m trying to make a thousand!” says Avery.

Avery says she really likes helping people and when she grows up she wants to be a nurse.

For now, she’ll help out by selling lemonade.

In just a few hours, Avery was able to help raise hundreds of dollars for the department.
