Local girls use lemonade stand to brighten holidays at hospital

Three grade schoolers in Colorado Springs have certainly made Santa's nice list this year. Hallee Hunziker, 10, Syndey Wagner, 10, and Lydia Glatt, 10, worked all summer and even a few days during Thanksgiving break at their lemonade stand to raise money for charity.

They earned a whopping $139 and used every penny of it to buy toys for the kids at Memorial Hospital for Children. We caught up with the girls as they dropped off their gifts on Friday.

"We decided to do it around this time to spread the Christmas cheer and let all these children who don't have the opportunity to get toys like these to let them have them," Hallee said.

As we've previously reported, donations to the hospital's Child Life Department have fallen sharply this year. So, if you'd like to join the girls in giving, you can drop off any new toy in the large collection bins stationed at each of the Hospital's main entrances.
