Growing the Village is Sweet 2023

Lemonade Stands Benefitting Foster Village Austin
Foster Village Austin creates connection with dignity for children and families experiencing foster care by meeting urgent needs, providing educational and emotional support, and advocating as a collective community voice for children.
This June, we're enlisting the community's help to raise funds and awareness by hosting a lemonade stand in their neighborhood, selling a lemonade-themed item through their local business, or visiting participating stands and businesses throughout Austin! #growingthevillageissweet
Thank you to Austin Subaru for sponsoring this campaign and helping to spread the mission of Foster Village throughout the community!"
3 Ways to Help GROW THE VILLAGE
1. Kids and Families - Host a Lemonade Stand Benefitting Foster Village:
To make it easy and fun, we're building Lemonade Stand Kits for $25 that will include two kid t-shirts, lemonade supplies, and a kid-friendly business plan (which will include simple and respectful ways to explain foster care to young minds). Lemonade stands can take place any day in June. Click the link below for more information and to register to purchase your kit.
2. Local Businesses - Sell a Lemonade-Themed Item
Calling all local businesses! You can help Grow the Village too by selling a lemonade-themed item throughout the month of June with proceeds benefitting Foster Village. In 2022, we saw lemonade cookies, lemonade donuts, lemonade bath bombs, and even a lemonade seltzer!
3. Community Members - Visit a Participating Business or Lemonade Stand
Let's rally together to help raise funds for children in foster care and their families! Stay tuned for the list of participating businesses you can visit in June to help Grow the Village. Also, keep an eye out for a Growing the Village is Sweet lemonade stand in your neighborhood, and make sure to stop by!
