the project

Since 2018, the young ladies of Sweet n Sassy have been hosting a lemonade stand. They took a break because of Covid in 2020 and in 2021. The ladies use proceeds from the lemonade stand to assist charities in the community. The first year that they hosted the lemonade stand, the proceeds went to an elderly lady who had just experienced an electrical house fire the previous day. Since then, they have donated to summer programs, teacher's for their classroom school supplies and children of a young man who was murdered senselessly. This year, the young ladies are now ages 12, 13, 15 and 16,  have expanded their offering to lemonade, sweet treats and garage sale items. Members of the community faithfully give the young ladies items and start-up capital for inventory.

why we're doing it

Our project helps meet a basic need of children in Detroit. Families struggle to make ends meet. The cost of food and other goods have skyrocketed since COVID creating a situation where families are making tough choices on tight budgets. We want to alleviate the stress and hardship by giving children in need quality school supplies that they can be proud of in school. Hopefully, with the necessary supplies children who receive school supplies from our project will excel academically.
