LEMONAID DAYS


Homelessness Hurts. Kids Can Help.

 

Register Your Stand!

THE PURPOSE

LemonAiD supports local homeless children while empowering young people to make a positive difference in their community. By operating a LemonAiD stand during the month of July, kids raise money that supports children staying at The Salvation Army's Emergency Homeless Shelter in Lexington.

 

HOMELESSNESS IN THE BLUEGRASS

Homeless families with children of all ages come to The Salvation Army’s comprehensive Emergency Shelter seeking refuge. So many families in our area are just a paycheck away from being out on the street. Homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked. People who are poor are frequently unable to pay for housing, food, child care, health care, and education. Difficult choices must be made when limited resources cover only some of these necessities. Often it is housing, which absorbs a high proportion of income, that must be dropped. Being poor means being an illness, an accident, or a paycheck away from living on the streets. Last year The Salvation Army was a safe haven for 1,532 homeless individuals including 407 children. Learn more about our shelter.
