SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - At 8-years-old, a Sevier County girl decided she wanted to make a difference and make sure no one in Sevier County goes hungry.

Hallie Maples set up a lemonade stand in front of Buddy’s BBQ in Sevierville to raise money for Sevier County Food Ministries.

She hand squeezed 5 bags of lemons, added the sugar and several cups of water and in the end sold more $300 worth of lemonade.

“The idea came from, I worked at God’s Pantry in Gatlinburg, and I wanted to do it so I could help heal some,” said Maples.

Her lemonade was so good she ran out and had to get some donated by Buddy’s to fulfill her orders.
