Sinjin’s lemonade stand at the Princeton Farmers’ Market has raised $2,500 this summer for Christine’s Hope for Kids.

Every summer, Sinjin Scozzaro travels from Texas to Princeton to visit his grandmother. Three years ago, he came across a poster for Christine’s Hope For Kids at the Princeton Farmers’ Market. Scozzaro inquired about Operation Backpack, and learned about its goal of supplying backpacks and school supplies to children in need.

Since then, Scozzaro has operated a lemonade stand at the farmers’ market for one day each summer to raise money for Operation Backpack. This year, he raised $642 selling lemonade. The total was matched by Christine’s Hope and JM Group bringing the total to $1,926, and later matched by the Scozzaro family bringing the total to $2,500.

The JM Group, consisting of the Princeton Farmers’ Market, Blue Point Grill, Witherspoon Grill and Nassau Street Seafood & Produce Co., thanked everyone who’s continued to support a the lemonade stand and Christine’s Hope for Kids.
