ROCHESTER, Minn. – It’s a gesture from a little girl that will make a big difference.

Rachel Barth is almost six years old, and is donating over $65 to Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV).

She made the money from her lemonade stand, which had the goal of helping people from the start.

“We saw people on the street begging for money,” Barth said.

More specifically, she had the goal of helping homeless veterans.

“Veterans are nice because they fought for America to help America’s team win,” Barth said.

The little girl’s donation will help veterans in Olmsted County. She received a certificate and military coin for her donation.
