After learning about the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, Brooklynn and Danielle Whitehead asked their parents for permission to have a fundraiser. 

The sisters, ages 9 and 6, set up a lemonade stand in front of their family's Harrison home. In a few hours, they raised $105, which they contributed to the Harrison Fire Department. Chief Rob Hursong recognized the girls at Harrison City Council Nov. 16 and presented them with junior firefighter badges. He also presented each of them with a challenge coin.

"They carry their coins with them everywhere," said their father, George Whitehead.

The Whitehead family are relatively new to Harrison and enjoying being part of the community. 

"People in Harrison are very generous," said Whitehead. "We couldn't ask for a better neighborhood."

The sisters are not finished with their good work in the community. They have set up a collection box at Harrison Elementary for hats and gloves that will be distributed to students in Southwest Local School District.
