A little girl in Hurst can close down her lemonade stand after a generous donation.

10-year-old girl Kaitlyn Chiles and her friend, 11-year-old Kaity Tracy, were selling lemonade and fruit punch on the corner of West Bedford Road and Norwood Drive to help Kaitlyn's parents pay for a new A/C unit.

"It broke down, so, I'm like, 'Well, since y'all don't have a lot of money, I'm going to just help out,'" Kaitlyn said. "So even if my parents say no, I'm going to help out."

A small drink went for 50 cents, and a large glass sold for $1.

Customers who stopped by the booth said they are proud of the girls' entrepreneurial spirit.

"That's a kid that's working for her money," Gilbert Dias said. Dias purchased four glasses of lemonade and fruit punch for co-workers.

Dias planned to return for more drinks on Wednesday, but on Wednesday afternoon the girls found out they could close down their lemonade stand.

R.W. Frederick and Associates saw the story and the air conditioning company donated a brand new unit to the Chiles family.
