Altamahaw-Ossipee Elementary School second-graders held a lemonade stand Wednesday, May 29, to raise money for Heifer International, a global nonprofit that gives families in need plants and/or animals, and training to increase their self-reliance.

The students raised $430, which was enough to provide chicks, bees, a goat, a sheep and a llama to families in Guatemala, Bolivia, Zanzibar, China and Bangladesh. On top of that, students learned lessons in economics, including how to count money and balance supply with demand.
