Hattie, Heidi and Jessica Nelson

Elaine and David Davenport welcomed their great nieces Hattie and Heidi for a summertime visit and put together a lemonade stand for a good cause. The Davenports contacted the Memorial Villages Police Department for suggestions for an organization that could benefit from their nieces’ efforts, and they were connected with Paws for Heroes, a nonprofit organization that rescues homeless dogs and trains them to serve as companions for veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Hattie and Heidi (pictured with Paws for Heroes founder Jessica Nelson, center) set up on Saddlewood Lane selling lemonade, popcorn, Rice Krispies treats, and stuffed-animal puppies. A generous donor decided to match the amount the girls raised, and Paws for Heroes received $2,700.
