Lemonade Love

What began in the heart of a little girl and one family in 2017, grew into a county-wide movement for The CALL this summer! Her goal then was to raise awareness of and funds for the needs of children in foster care in Pulaski County. That was our goal with Lemonade Love!

The CALL is grateful for the 21 families that participated in the Lemonade Love: Stand for Foster Kids campaign. We touched hundreds of people throughout the month of June, many who were not aware of the foster care crisis in our state or the work of The CALL

When the last glass of lemonade was served, the campaign raised over $12,000 dollars for the work to recruit, train and support families who foster and adopt. In addition, we are profoundly grateful for the sponsorship of the Metro Chick-fil-A stores and their teams who wholeheartedly lent their support to Lemonade Love. Thanks as well to Chris and Collette Shilcutt of Wild River County, Arkansas’ Largest Water Park, who blessed us with season passes or our winning families in each of these three categories –

Prize winning families were:
Kevin and Judy Hoggard and Oasis for Most Guests served
Brooke Pember for Most Funds raised at an individual stand
Ryne and Alyssa Pruitt (pictured) for Most Creative Lemonade Love stand

We also want to congratulate the Grand Prize winner of a Chick-fil-A meal a week for a year who was Jim Wyatt from Otter Creek!

Thanks to all those who stopped by to help, engage and bless a child in foster care and for making the Lemonade Love: Stand for Foster Kids campaign!
