CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -
A Clarksville girl donated some of the money she earned while running a lemonade stand over the summer to help a warming shelter.
Charlotte Thomas first began her lemonade stand to help a young, underprivileged girl in Mexico.
As the bitter cold temperatures set in across the state of Tennessee, Thomas decided to use some of the money to help the warming shelter set up at New Providence United Methodist Church in Clarksville.
"I asked my mom if they would donate any money and she said yes, so I split the money up that I got over the summer from the Kool-Aid and lemonade stand and I split it up for my friend [in Mexico] and this place," Thomas explained.
The shelter, located at 1317 Fort Campbell Boulevard, will remain open through Wednesday morning.
