Alex's Lemonade Stand

In today’s day and age, we all know someone whose life has been affected by cancer. Although it is a very persistent disease, so too are those who are diagnosed and fighting their own battles. Many of you have also heard of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) which helps fight raise money for childhood cancer research. This year’s event takes place from June 2nd to June 16th at all ACME stores throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, New York and Connecticut to help raise funds for childhood cancer awareness and the search for a cure.

Alexandra “Alex” Scott, was just one year old when she was diagnosed with cancer. By the time she was four, she set up her own lemonade stand to raise money for kids just like her. She raised a whopping 1 million dollars by the time of her passing at a mere 8 years old.

We want YOU to help continue and support Alex’s legacy by donating $1, $3, or $5 in any of our ACME store locations. Donations are extremely easy and take no time at all. It truly is a win-win! What’s even better is that 100% of the donations at store level will go to the ALSF to help cure childhood cancer. Simply donate that extra dollar as you are checking out at your local ACME for a genuinely great cause. We all know someone that has been impacted by cancer, but with your help and generosity, we will finally find a cure.
