Lemonade Teaches Fun of Charity

October 01, 2004

Children at a local family child care facility worked together to raise $350 recently by selling lemonade in what has become an annual tradition.

The children at Yahjian Family Child Care Home raised the funds to benefit the Conservadores, a La Cañada Flintridge-based group that is raising funds to preserve the land behind the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA as a park and conservation area.

Director Gayane Yahjian, whose center is one of the few in the area with a program for special needs children, has used the annual lemonade sale, now in its third year, to teach the children in her facility about the fun of charity.

"Children need to learn to be a part of the community and they need to see some results of their hard work and charity," Yahjian said.

All the children helped to squeeze the lemonade, which was sold for $1 per cup, and many parents pitched in as well.
