LemonAiD is a benefit for impoverished children run by caring kids who want to make a difference.
The concept of LemonAiD is simple—kids help other kids by operating a lemonade stand. The Salvation Army will send a package with everything you need to get started. All YOU provide is the Lemonade and a servant’s heart. The fundraiser runs from June 2nd through July 14th where the finale will be held at MAPFRE Stadium.
There’s a special kick-off event at Easton on Saturday, June 2nd. Your friends Mary, Josh and River Dog will be there from 11am-2pm, so be sure to come say hello!
LemonAid makes a difference in Central Ohio. The impact is two-fold.
First, kids participating learn the priceless lesson that they can make a positive difference in their community. They also learn some marketing and business skills. LemonAiD provides a meaningful family and youth group activity.
Second, The Salvation Army will use 100% of the proceeds to help poverty-stricken children by providing hot meals, after-school and summer education, recreation programs, mentoring by caring adults, music classes, scholarships to summer camp and more.
