COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- "Lohak Lemonade" is proving you're never too little to make a big difference.

The lemonade stand - founded by cousins Ryder and Emerie Lopez, and Scot Cihak - is donating 40% of their sales to Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado. The food bank recently suffered big losses because of donations being damaged by recent hail and rainstorms.

“We wanted to have some family fun over the summer and help care and share with their hail damage and get that fixed,” says Ryder Lopez. "Ever since I was young, we've been donating."

Lohak lemonade, on Flintridge Drive, is selling raspberry and regular lemonade - all for a dollar a pop.

"We want to raise at least $50 for Care and Share," says Ryder.

By 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, they reached that goal and then some.

With Care and Share feeding 35% more people amid the pandemic, Lohak Lemonade couldn't have opened up shop at a better time.

UPDATE: Lohak Lemonade made a whopping $650! The Lopez and Cihak kiddos decided to update their donation percentage and donate 100% percent of sales to Care and Share Food Bank.
