Grace & June’s Lemon-Aid Stand For Good
Grace and June Hendrian are excited to announce they will once again host a Lemon-Aid Stand to benefit The Salvation Army. This year the Hendrian sisters are inviting children in the community and surrounding area to join them in Doing the Most Good for their neighbors in need by hosting a Lemon-Aid Stand of their own.
This special event will be held Saturday, September 3, from 8:00-10:00 a.m. While Grace and June’s stand will be located at Hardy’s Radiator (North 12th across from the Illinois Veterans Home entrance), children across The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command’s service area (Adams, Pike, & Brown Counties in Illinois and Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Shelby, and Monroe Counties in Missouri) are encouraged to host a stand at their homes or local businesses. Each Lemon-Aid Stand can customize what drinks and treats they would like to sell.
Lemon-Aid Stand participants must fill out a Google Form: https://bit.ly/3JCkD0z . The registration deadline is August 19. Be sure to join our Facebook group for updates: https://www.facebook.com/groups/421740316651273 . A kit will be provided to each stand by The Salvation Army. The kit will include an iconic Red Kettle, tablecloth, official Grace & June’s Lemon-Aid Stand signage, and payment information for The Salvation Army. 100% of the funds raised during this event will be given directly to The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command Office of Family Services.
Grace and June’s Lemon-Aid Stand History:
In 2019, Grace asked her mom if she could have a lemonade stand with the intent to donate all the proceeds to a local charity. Kellea instructed her to consider what organization for which she’d like to raise money. Intending to raise $100 for the Quincy Salvation Army, Grace (and her parents) embarked on pulling together all of the details of the stand. Grace, who surpassed her goal by $900, appreciated the financial support and encouragement from family members, out-of-town friends, and the Quincy community. In 2021, June joined her sister in fundraising for The Salvation Army. The girls raised $2,320, surpassing their goal of $1250 or 500 meals for families in need. In 2022 Grace and June will continue their tradition of lending a hand up to those in need by inviting the community to join them in Doing the Most Good and hosting Lemon-Aid Stands across The Salvation Army Quincy Area Commend service area.
