Lemonade Day is Back for 2021: Drive-Thru Kickoff March 2!
I’m very excited to share that Lemonade Day Wichita Falls is back after our cancellation in 2020!
(Full disclosure, my employer, Texoma Community Credit Union, became the title sponsor in 2018, and me and my marketing assistant Leah are also donating our time and marketing expertise to this amazing nonprofit!)
What is Lemonade Day and Why Should You Care?
Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business: a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day’s program builds self-reliance and financial literacy, and introduces important business and entrepreneurial skills. Children experience a new level of confidence and see possibilities for their future – as leaders, volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens.
Lemonade Day is a nonprofit but it is NOT a fundraiser. Young entrepreneurs who start a stand KEEP the profits they earn. The purpose is educational. (And fun!) Anyone can join, and there is no participation fee.
Special Note: The program works best students in third grade and above, but can be adjusted to any age. (Lessons on planning the stand may have to be modified accordingly.)
How do you get involved?
- Register for free at LemonadeDay.org/Wichita-Falls
- Stop by our Drive-Thru Supply Pickup Party (details below) or the SBDC at MSU to pick up your materials
- Work through your booklet and prepare to host a stand on Saturday, April 24, 2021!
SAVE THE DATES:
Thursday, March 2 (come and go, 5-7 pm) – Supply Drive-Thru Pickup Party
We’re not hosting a traditional kick-off party like we usually do, but instead a drive thru to pick up supplies. However, we’re packing those supply bags with some pretty sweet giveaways, so you definitely don’t want to miss it!
Saturday, April 24 – Lemonade Day!
Because we don’t know where we’ll stand with COVID vaccinations by April, we will also not be having a wrap-up party, but there will still be kids across Wichita Falls hosting stands – so please go out and support them!
Lending Night – Ongoing
There will not be a formal lending night for stands to get loans for supplies from Texoma Community Credit Union. Instead, all you have to do is call Leah (at the number below) to set up an appointment and we can come to you, or you can stop by TCCU, anytime between now and April 20. Just make sure your business plan is ready to go and present to the loan officer!
