Lemons Into Lemon-Aid

Robin Hood Foundation

Spencer Walsh, Neeley Clarke, Maddie Clarke and Ella Moore

On a summer Saturday, more than 200 Greenwich children participated in Lemonaid, a program that encouraged kids to set up lemonade stands to raise money to fight poverty. The motivated youngsters set up sixteen Lemonaid stands throughout town and stirred and poured as they called out to passing residents to “take a stand against poverty.” In only four hours, $12,000 dollars was raised. All of the funds were donated to the Robin Hood Foundation, which fights poverty in New York City. Kimberly Clarke, who helped organize the Greenwich Lemonaid event says that next year’s goal is 100 stands. robinhood.org
