Garrett & Austin will donate $132 to the Star of Hope Mission after setting up a lemonade stand to help the homeless. After leaving a Houston Dynamo game Garrett, 9, saw people getting ready to spend the night on the street. “It really made me sad,” said Simmons. The next day he wrote a business plan for a lemonade stand with the idea to give half the profits to charity.
After talking with his parents he learned about how the Star of Hope helps the homeless and decided to donate half his proceeds to the charity. The Simmons’ family plans to also volunteer to pass out cookies and milk at the Star of Hope.
