As Connecticut State Police continue to investigate an abduction and assault last weekend, the community once again came together to help the 64-year-old victim.

They held a lemonade stand Sunday on Planeta Road. All of the proceeds will help the woman who police say was taken from a Big Y parking lot on Route 66 last Sunday.

Two men approached the woman and demanded money before throwing her in the backseat of her own vehicle. The men then showed a handgun, put a bag over her head and hit her in the face multiple times, according to police.

Earlier this week, the Marlborough community came together came together to donate, make meals and offer their support.

The organizer of the lemonade stand says she wants to brighten the woman's darkest days. She's creating sunshine boxes for her and anyone who attended was able to drop off anything yellow to add to it, including items such as candles, lotions, body wash, bubble bath, candy, warm socks, and more.
