Buy lemonade to help our troops

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Some Albany girls are turning lemons into lemonade for troops serving overseas.

Wednesday morning, the girls participating in the American Girls camp at Darton College took their dolls and sold lemonade to students and faculty at Darton for a dollar a glass.

All the money earned will go toward putting together care packages to send to troops serving overseas.

Rayelin Hamond said they're doing it"Because they're lonely."

"They're lonely? And what are they doing for us?"

"They're keeping our country free," said Hamond.

And how does that make her feel?

"Safe."

One of the time periods the American Girl dolls represent includes a time of war.

Employees at Darton have also been asked to contribute money toward creating care packages for troops.
