Flagler Beach Children will Sell Lemonade for a Good Cause

Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity and Lemons to Aid,  a movement encouraging kids to give to others by getting involved in creative ways, have joined forces to bring shoes to other people in need with the launch of a new program called Lemon Drop.

The program is designed specifically for children, who will sell lemonade and collect shoes at local stands.  

Children are the future of this country and the hope of tomorrow,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, and added:
We are incredibly proud to be working with Lemons to Aid in setting up Lemon Drops across the country, and are hopeful that other children will follow in Natalie, Isabel, and Ava’s footsteps and learn that they can make a difference in our world. Through something as simple as a lemonade stand or a gift of shoes, the life of someone in need can be truly touched… all because a child got involved.

Natalie, Isabel, and Ava of Flagler Beach, Florida will be hosting a Lemon Drop in their community on October 15th and 16th, at the Flagler Beach Farmer’s market from 8:30am-12:30pm.

They will be hosting another series of Lemon Drops at the Flagler County Fairgrounds, near the concession stand on October 19th and 22nd from 5-10pm, and all day Saturday, October 23rd.

We look forward to having our local community come join our family at the Main Squeeze, in support of a great cause,” said Elaine Vanderver Green of Main Squeeze, a mobile vendor that sells all-natural, fresh-squeezed lemonade and Italian ice.  “With the proceeds being donated to Soles4Souls, we look forward to helping Change the World One Pair at a Time® and one cup at a time!

Community members can stop by to purchase lemonade and other refreshments, as well as “drop” their new and gently worn shoes off to be donated to Soles4Souls.  All proceeds and shoes collected at the Vanderver Green Family’s Lemon Drop will be used to supply the gift of shoes to people in need.
