DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On the corner of Petunia Drive in Taylor, you will find a group of girls hard at work turning a childhood tradition into a rally for Wiregrass medical professionals.

But this drink stand is not your average pop-up business. For one, this is a well-oiled machine.

Second, the profits aren’t even being kept by the owners. Instead, the money is being sent where a battle is taking place against COVID-19.

“We just want help them because they are helping other families,” said one of the drink stand operators.

“They said we want to buy lunch for the hospital workers at Flowers,” Tonya Collins said. “We went and purchased 20 lunch boxes to be delivered to Flowers Hospital.”

WDHN was there when those lunch boxes were delivered to critical care unit workers outside the hospital. A small group of nurses was there to accept the donations made possible by the little drink stand in Taylor.

“It can be a little depressing at times,” said respiratory therapist Sandy Sanders. “But the community and even the girls and boys doing the lemonade stand, they really mean a lot to us that they’re all thinking about us during this time.”

From the nurses at Flowers Hospital to the girls in Taylor:

“Thank you for the support and love that you’re showing us,” said Jackie Skerlick, director of Flowers Hospital’s Respiratory Department. “It really comes to heart that they’re thinking about us as healthcare workers.”

Likewise, from the girls in Taylor to all the Wiregrass medical professionals:

“Thank you so, so much for all that you do!”

And from all of us here at WDHN, thank you both for all that you do.
