What We Don't Accept


Project Lemonade operates a back to school "free" shopping event for foster youth each summer. We procure new and nearly new clothing from our generous community. We serve kids ages 5-20, we need a range of sizes, the smallest a 4T, all the way through XXXL.  Kids want to fit in with their peers and look fashionable.  The clothes they wear should reflect what others are wearing as well.
