Community lemonade stand to be held to support Marlborough assault victims – NBC Connecticut
As Connecticut State Police continue to investigate a kidnapping and assault this past weekend, the community is coming together again to help the 64-year-old victim.
They plan to organize a lemonade stand on Sunday on Planeta Road. All proceeds will help the woman who police say was taken from a Big Y parking lot on Route 66 last Sunday.
Two men approached the woman and asked her for money before throwing her in the backseat of his own vehicle. The men then showed a handgun, put a bag over her head and punched her in the face several times, police said.
Earlier this week, the community of Marlborough came together to donate, prepare meals and offer support.
The lemonade stand organizer says she wants to brighten up a woman’s darker days. She is creating a sun box for herself and anyone who attends can drop anything yellow to add. This can include items such as candles, lotions, shower gel, bubble bath, candy, warm socks, or whatever else you can think of.
Participants are also encouraged to deposit house cards, gift cards and notes.
The lemonade stand will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and cups of lemonade can be purchased for $ 1.
