A young Riverside resident is giving back to first responders one sweet treat at a time, in response to the heated interactions happening across the country. Brandye Russell, said her 6-year-old daughter, Pyper, noticed rising tensions in the news, particularly between police and civilians. She said Pyper wanted to do something to support peace in her community, so she decided to make a pop-up snack stand for police and other first responders right in their driveway. “With everything bad going on, she’s like, ‘I don’t understand mom, I don’t understand. She’s like, ‘Let’s put a smile on their face.'” Pyper’s Snack Shack opened Friday at 12:30pm, where she and her family offered free candy, snacks, and snowcones to first-responders who stopped by throughout the day.
