Four moms — members of the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly who support the annual Play Fore the Kids Golf, Games and Tennis fundraiser for children with special needs at the JCC — decided they wanted their eight toddlers to learn more about the importance of giving. All the children go to toddler, transitional, and 3-year-old programs at the JCC’s Leonard and Syril Rubin Nursery School. The families raised $128 at their lemonade sale, which was donated to Camp Dream Street. The camp’s mission is to help children with cancer and their siblings enjoy a week of fun and normalcy.

The mothers planned the lemonade stand with support from Lisa Robins, Camp Dream Street’s director. They decided to do it every summer as their own personal “Dream Street” campaign.
