50 Officers Visit Little Girl's Lemonade Stand and It's Melting Our Hearts

| Inspiration

Police officers from a local department in Kansas City, North paid a visit to a 3-year-old’s lemonade stand for one of the most endearing reasons.

Hannah Pasley’s dream to become a police officer got a boost when officers made a surprise visit to her lemonade stand — a business model the toddler used to earn enough money to buy a police officer’s uniform.

The 3-year-old who was dressed head to toe in a law enforcement costume had more than 50 officers visit her street after her aunt, Ashly Rooks called into a station letting them know the toddler with dreams of becoming a cop one day was selling lemonade.

In the post shared to Facebook that has since gone viral with more than 10,000 reactions, shares and comments, neighbor and friend of Rooks, Sierra Moore said she never thought it would happen.

“Whenever the first officer came out, Hannah was so happy and we just wanted at least one to stop by,” she wrote on the viral post. “Well, all of a sudden more and more started to come out. We have had sheriff’s, police officers, K-9 units, swope park officers came with horse’s, we are even having a helicopter fly over.”

Moore writes that the experience not only made the little girl happy, but the community as well.
