The blazing heat didn't stop a group of girls in Albany today in their quest to support our troops overseas.
The American Girl Campers sold lemonade for a dollar a cup, and the money will be used to make care packages for our military men and women.
For one young customer, the lemonade did more than just quench her thirst.
Buying this cup of lemonade is bittersweet for Dominique Jackson.
While enjoying her ice cold drink, she thinks of her dad.
"I miss him," says Dominique Jackson, Darton College student.
She has not seen her father in more than a year because he is stationed in Germany.
"It is actually amazing to see little kids doing stuff like this," says Jackson.
The young girls in the American Girl Camp sold lemonade at Darton College to raise money for care packages they put together to send to the troops.
"They are fighting for our freedom and I want to have freedom," says Haley Haas, 8 year old camper.
And the care packages come with a personal touch.
"Last year we wrote them a letter and I think we are going to do that this year too," says Charlotte Augenstein, 9 year old camper.
And the troops were not the only ones who received letters last year.
The girls received a few letters as well, thank you cards from the troops.
"We actually received a flag last year that flew over Afghanistan, we have the folded up flag, so that brought tears to our eyes last year," says Heather Harbuck, Camp Teacher.
They raised a couple hundred dollars last year and were able to send out 6 care packages.
"They see that people back in the USA care so much about them, sending them food and stuff," says Jackson.
She says these young girls have inspired her to get involved in raising money for a good cause.
