Three Bridgeville kids operating a lemonade stand/clothing drive got a surprise visit from the police last week — and it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.
While on patrol, Bridgeville Police Sergeant Bill Young stopped by the stand, which was run by Roberta Adamski’s children, Naudia, Mason, and Alleya. After having a cup of lemonade, he gave the kids of tour of his police truck, which, for a kid, is a like getting to peek around the inside of the Millennium Falcon.
But the clothing drive portion of the kids’ effort wasn’t going so well, so Young returned later in the day with a donation of winter clothing.
The story would have ended there, except that WPXI-TV picked up on the story. Reporter Jennifer Tomazic was writing about it on Facebook today, saying, “I don’t like this story, I love it!” The station ran a feature story on the kids during the 6 p.m. news.
By the looks of the coat rack shown on the news, donations have significantly increased since the sergeant’s visit last week.
The kids told WPXI that the clothing will be donated to their church and that residents should expect a hot chocolate stand this winter.
