Students and staff members from Greenwood Elementary are taking a stand to help fight childhood cancer. The school is hosting five Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) events during late April with all proceeds going to this Foundation.
The stands are planned from 4 to 6:30 p.m. April 21 and 9 to noon April 22 at Casey’s in Greenwood, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 22 at the Greenwood Antique Garden Show, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m April 23 at Greenwood Fellowship Church and 5 to 8 p.m. April 25 at Greenwood Elementary’s Fine Arts Night.
The school is planning a student assembly that will include brief videos of Alex Scott, founder of the organization; a video about a young girl who benefitted from research funded by ALSF; and a skit by sixth-graders about the benefits of donating to this cause.
Donations may be made by attending any of the Alex’s Lemonade Stands, which accept cash as well as checks made payable to ALSF. You may also donate by texting LEMONADE LS E1312742 to 85944 to make a $10 donation or by visiting www.alexslemonade.org/donate/1312742.
Funds raised through ALSF pay for medical research to find cures for childhood cancer. Through donations to the Foundation, $50 will pay for one hour of research, $400 pays for one day, $2,000 pays for one week and $8,000 pays for one month.
