The annual “Kids Helping Kids” LemonAid stand is gearing up to return to River Forest for their most successful fundraising opportunity yet. The LemonAid sale and donation collection will take place on Friday, Sept. 11 from 3 to 7 p.m. on the 700 block of Bonnie Brae.
LemonAid, established one year after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has raised more than $140,000 to date for local charities that serve children.
“The neighbors on 700 Bonnie Brae in River Forest felt called to remember this day by doing something positive in the community. More than 80 Bonnie Brae residents, mostly kids, participate one way or another to the organization and success of LemonAid,” according to the LemonAid website.
Proceeds made this year will benefit the National Alliance on Mental Illness and Parents Allied with Children and Teachers for Tomorrow. Past charities, all chosen by Bonnie Brae residents, have included Shiner’s Hospital for Children, Opportunity Knocks and the OPRF Food Pantry.
