LemonAiD campaign, to benefit Lexington’s homeless families, continues through Aug. 5

The Salvation Army’s annual LemonAiD campaign, a benefit that raises money for homeless children and their families, kicked off Friday and continues through Aug. 5.

LemonAiD, now in its 10th year, empowers children to make a positive difference in their community. Parents can obtain LemonAiD registration materials for their children, provide lemonade stand supplies, select a convenient time and day to run a stand, and donate the proceeds to the Salvation Army’s emergency homeless shelter, which houses homeless families.

Registration materials are available online at Lemonaiddays.org, at Whitaker Banks in Lexington and Georgetown, and at the Salvation Army, 736 West Main Street, and 100 Washington Square, Georgetown. Last year, more than 500 youths registered to have a lemonade stand and raised more than $50,000.

To open a virtual LemonAiD stand, go to Lemonaiddays.org for access to online giving.
