Lemon-Aid is a Labor Day Weekend city-wide fundraiser originally held from 1994 to 2000, where kids across Tulsa, Oklahoma donated their time to sell lemonade and all money raised went directly to benefit the children and families at the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. Over the course of seven Labor Day Weekends, with the help of more than 10,000 youth volunteers, Lemon-Aid raised more than $350,000.

Beginning in 2019, we relaunched the project as part of a 25th anniversary celebration. We provide the donated materials (lemonade, cups, official t-shirt and poster) and youth all over Tulsa provide the creativity, energy and time!
