LemonAiD is a benefit for impoverished children run by caring kids who want to help. 2021 marks the 6th Annual LemonAiD Campaign in Central Ohio.

The concept of LemonAiD is simple—kids help other kids by operating a virtual lemonade stand during the campaign and donating the proceeds to The Salvation Army. This is FUN fundraising!

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 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.
