LemonAid Stands & Birthday Bashes!
CEFCU has partnered with Children's Hospital of Illinois to help children and youth groups turn lemons into lemon "aid" and hold a party with purpose! Children are invited to help kids who are in the hospital because they're not feeling well by holding a LemonAid Stand or a birthday bash. The money raised will be used to buy special equipment to help kids heal, allow teachers to help kids keep up on their homework, and purchase toys or activities to make kids feel better while they're in the hospital.
LemonAid Stand details are outlined below. Interested in a birthday bash? Click here.
Participating is easy! A complete LemonAid Stand kit has been designed to help plan the event. The free kits are available at any Peoria CEFCU Member Center or the Children's Hospital of Illinois Foundation office at 4541 N. Prospect Road (4th Floor) in Peoria Heights.
What's in the Kit?
- 1 LemonAid Stand Location Information sheet
- 1 Return envelope
- 15 invitations
- 1 money box
- 50 thank you stickers
