Kids Helping Homeless Kids
The purpose of LemonAiD is to empower young people to make a positive difference in their community by operating a lemonade stand during the month of July and donating the proceeds to help homeless children residing in The Salvation Army’s Emergency Homeless Shelter.
Last year, nearly 1,600 caring kids registered to have a stand and raised over $45,500. The Salvation Army uses LemonAiD funds to support the operational expenses associated with housing homeless children–food, lodging, diapers, clothing, childcare, professional case management, the replacement of worn furnishings and equipment.
LemonAiD began in 2007 by The Salvation Army Central Kentucky Area Services in Lexington, Kentucky. 1,230 children participated.
