On the weekend of Saturday July 28 and Sunday July 29, kids and families in 91 cities, across 38 states, hosted over 112 lemonade stands as part of Kids Take a Stand. These lemonade stands raised OVER $35,000!
Since April, thousands of children have been separated from their parents at the U.S. border as a result of President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. Despite a court order to reunite children with their parents, many children are still sitting alone in shelters. All proceeds from the lemonade stands will benefit Project Corazon, a program designed to help safely reunite families.
Here’s how to get involved in 4 easy steps!
1. On July 28th or July 29th at 10 am Local, host a lemonade stand in your neighborhood and invite friends, families, and neighbors
