Lemonade stand to benefit children's hospital

DOWNEY - A couple of Downey kids plan to spend a part of their summer vacation helping sick and needy kids.David and Daniel Arrieta, ages 14 and 9 respectively, will host a lemonade stand Aug. 18 outside their home at 10348 Pangborn Ave. (south of Florence Avenue). The sale starts at 11 a.m. and will continue until the lemonade runs out. Each cup of lemonade is 75 cents and the brothers are donating half the proceeds to Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Additional donations are welcomed. The boys will take pictures of the lemonade sale and include them in a card they'll deliver to the hospital, along with the donation. In addition to buying lemonade, residents can also help by donating any excess lemons they may have. To donate lemons, call the boys' mother, Marcela, at (562) 869-2311 or e-mail m_arrieta@yahoo.com.
