Robin Hood "Lemonaid" Campaign Taking Over The Hamptons This Labor Day Weekend

This Labor Day weekend, local Hamptons kids, teens and families will set up "Robin Hood Lemonaid" stands across the East End to take a stand against poverty by selling lemonade.

"Robin Hood will provide kits that give families all of the information they need to set up a stand (stats about where the money goes, recipes, a history of the program, stickers/stencils, etc.)," explained Marc Smrikarov. "They also send tee shirts for kids to wear when they sell the lemonaid."

All proceeds from the lemonade stands will support Robin Hood, New York's largest poverty fighting organization. The funds will go towards food pantries, soup kitchens, and other emergency food services across the five boroughs.

This effort in the past has led to over $1 million raised and more than 800,000 meals served.

Founded 30 years ago, Robin Hood has since partnered with over 200 community partners to provide education, food, shelter, healthcare, job training, legal support as well as other necessary services for people in need in New York.

It has since become one of the country's largest anti-poverty organizations.

The campaign will run from Friday, August 31 to Sunday, September 2 and stands can be found in Sagaponack, Southampton, Shelter Island, Bridgehampton, Sag Harbor, and Amagansett.

Public stands will be located at Juice Press (93 Main Street, Southampton) on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Jack's Marina (188 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island Heights) on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Those interested in hosting a stand can email lemonaid@robinhood.org or visit robinhood.org.
