Kids Helping Kids Offers Lemonaide Day Grants!

About Kids Helping Kids, Inc.:  Kids Helping Kids (KHK) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization started by Alexandria kids in 2002 that sponsors a city-wide event called “Lemonaide Day” which will take place this year on Saturday, May 21st, 2016. On that day, kids throughout Alexandria will set up lemonade stands to raise money to help other Alexandria kids in need. Lemonaide Day is organized by a Junior Board of Directors comprised of five eighth and ninth grade girls.

All of the proceeds from lemonade stands will be given as grants to Alexandria non-profits dedicated to children. Last year, “Lemonaide Day” raised more than $15,000 and hopes to do the same again this year. In the past, Kids Helping Kids has supported a variety of local non-profits including: Alexandria Tutoring Consortium, Coats For Kids, ALIVE!, Healthy Families Alexandria, Center For Alexandria’s Children, Child & Family Network Centers, Wright To Read, and Space Of Her Own.
