Lemonade Stand Benefits Victim's Family

Posted: Updated:

MARDELA SPRINGS, Md. - The tragic death of a local teenager in a car accident has led to an outpouring of support from people of all ages. A lemonade stand in Mardela Springs, Md has become a neighborhood effort to support the family of Natalie Insley. Insley, 17, was killed Monday evening when the car she was riding in crashed on Sharptown Road in Sharptown, Md..

For the past two days youngsters on Norris Twilly Road have been selling lemonade to benefit Insley's family.  What started as just a lemonade stand has grown to include baked goods and coffee as word spread on social media and community members flocked to help.
 

"The family (Insley's) has been by several times today and yesterday and they are so touched and moved, so grateful for the entire community and everyone who is helping," said Lori Mocarsky, the mother of a lemonade stand volunteer. Mocarsky believes the children are learning a valuable lesson. "They are just super happy about helping this family," she said.

About $2,000 was raised Wednesday through sales and donations.

The young volunteers attend Northwestern Elementary School in Mardela Springs.          

"We talk about at school being compassionate and kind to others. It makes you feel good inside to see what they are doing," said Kirby Bryson, Principal at Northwestern Elementary School.

Insley, from Tyaskin, Md., was a student at Bennett High School in Salisbury, Md. She was in the front passenger seat when the car hit a tree. Also in the car were a 17-year-old male driver and two other passengers, a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy.

Maryland State Police say the investigation into the accident could take 30 to 60 days as they work to reconstruct the accident. That investigation will include additional interviews with the other teenagers in the car. There were no other known witnesses to the accident. Police say there are no indications alcohol was a factor in the accident.
