HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Running this stand is an awesome way to help the MSPCA to have enough money to feed, care for and medicate homeless animals. Many of our animals need surgeries, medications and special foods to be happy and healthy. We can only provide these things for them if we have the money to do it!

DESCRIPTION

What's more fun than running a lemonade stand? How about running a lemonade stand and actually getting to see the animals you're helping with the money you raise! At the MSPCA, one of the best ways for kids to help us is by running a lemonade or hot cocoa/cider stand at our adoption center! You can pick any day we are open (Tues-Fri from 1-5pm and weekends from 11am-4pm). Sometimes kids will bring baked goods as well, so they can raise even more money for our animals, and you get to decide where the money goes too!

 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Whatever drink(s) you want to sell (Lemonade, Cider and Hot Cocoa are the most popular)

2. Baked Goods (optional)

3. Cups and napkins

4. Kettle to hold hot beverages (and/or pitchers for cold)
