FRAMINGHAM – Over the weekend, eight kids from four families in one Framingham neighborhood created a pop-up candy store.

The kids sold Starburst, Twizzlers, Gummy Bears, Sour Patch Kids, water, etc to raise money to help those battling the coronavirus in this pandemic.

“They were so excited to present their proceeds – $112 – to me to donate to Boston Medical Center,” said Framingham mom Kelly Miller, who works at the Center.

The money will be donated to the center’s COVID relief fund, she told SOURCE.

“They spent one day the weekend before planning it on a Google doc – what everything would cost and who was in charge of what,” explained Miller. “Over the two days that they set up shop, they made $112.”

Candy store employees included Aleah Miller, age 9, Brandon Marquis, 9, Cohen Miller, 11, Gavin Coutu, 8, Jake Coutu, 10, Logan Coutu, 5, Roshin Lavakumar, 10, and Vihaan Lavakumar, 12.
