Earlier this week, some kids in a south Tulsa neighborhood ran a lemonade stand.

A group of teenagers visited the stand, purchased lemonade and took off with the stands money. When one child gave chase, police said the teens assaulted him and he had to get stitches.

Some parents and members of the community didn't want this memory to ruin the fun the kids had with the lemonade stand. Over one hundred people came out to support the lemonade stand to show the young entrepreneurs that even with setbacks, good things can still come.

The Chick-Fil-A at 71st and Garnett heard about the lemonade stand's recent troubles and came out to donate lemonade for the kids to sell.

One of the parents told 2 Works for You, "we were blown away by your love and generosity! This is a valuable lesson that we all need right now. We all need to remember that when something happens that is painful, hurtful and wrong that we do not have to be stuck in that feeling but that we can stand and choose to trust again!"

With help from the community, the lemonade stand made over $700.
