Huntsville siblings set up lemonade stand for tornado relief effort

Even the youngest people in the community are finding ways to give back to those who lost everything in last week's storms. Two sets of Huntsville siblings have set up a lemonade stand to raise money for North Alabama's tornado relief efforts.

Their slogan: "Drink lemonado for the victims of tornado!"

The idea all started with 11-year-old Alison Wells.

"My granddaddy's house was hit bad, and his neighborhood was hit bad, and somebody was killed," Wells said. "And so I realized how much we had to give back to our community and we had to do something about it."

She recruited her twin brother Alex, who was skeptical at first.

"I just thought we were going to raise 20 dollars at least," Alex Wells said.

Alison also got her neighbors, nine-year-old Jack Condron and six-year-old Sean Condron involved, and they set up shop outside of their subdivision off Bankhead Parkway.

At the end of the day, they raised 115 dollars, which they're planning to donate to the Red Cross.

They plan to set up their lemonade stand again on Saturday from noon until 3pm on the corner of Bankhead Parkway and GasLight Way. They say their next goal is 500 dollars.
