How Do I Host The Boston MSPCA’s Lemonade Stand?
You don’t have to be an adult to help animals! Even the youngest member of the community can take action for homeless neglected animals. The Boston MSPCA Lemonade Stand is a great opportunity for kids to host a fundraiser.
The MSPCA’s Lemonade Stand is an old-fashioned lemonade stand, custom-made for the MSPCA by a volunteer. The lemonade stand can be set up at the Adoption Center Tuesdays-Fridays 1-5pm and Saturdays and Sundays 12-4pm, and staffed by children of all ages (must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). It’s also designed to be portable, so the Lemonade Stand can be taken to offsite events, schools, or even your own neighborhood!
Hosts of The Lemonade Stand donate all product and supplies for lemonade. You can set your own price – be sure to tell your customers that you are donating the proceeds to the animals at the MSPCA!
As a thank you for your support, we’ll provide a tax-deductible donation receipt for hosts of the Lemonade Stand.
Hosting is easy! Just a few simple steps and you’ll be on your way to raising money for homeless animals!
Pick a Location!
You can choose to host here at the MSPCA, at an offsite event, or even your own neighborhood!
Pick A Date!
Choose a date during our available hours (Tuesdays-Fridays 1-5pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 12-4pm), and we’ll book the Lemonade Stand for you.
Create Your Lemonade Recipe!
Whether it’s fresh-squeezed lemonade from your own special recipe, or you get a little help from a pre-made mix, your lemonade recipe is certain to be successful!
Gather Your Supplies!
You’ll need cups, a few pitchers and plenty of ice to keep your lemonade cold. Think about creating a special sign to display, to let people know about the animals you are trying to help and why it’s important to you.
Set your own price, but be sure to let people know that you are donating the proceeds to the animals of the MSPCA.
*Please note that some event organizers and some towns may have restrictions or permits may be required to host a lemonade stand. Parents are responsible for making sure that any and all permits are secured in advance.
