  • Responsibilities: engaging pedestrians, assist in set up and break down, pouring, money management, supply management, records, IPAD
  • Will meet at LS location and stay for entire 1.5 hours

Drivers: 

  • Will drive the Bridges van to help transport Youth to/from Bridges and Lemonade Stand location

What is the volunteer-to-child ratio? 

Depending on the number of volunteers and children that come to a Lemonade Stand, you could be paired with 1-5 children to look after.

Where are the Lemonade Stands located? 

Please see the main Lemonade Stand Page to view the schedule.

What type of verbiage should we use when interacting with folks purchasing lemonade?  

Please be careful with the language that you use when engaging with pedestrians. When expressing the Bridges mission to passerby, use the phrase “families facing housing barriers”, rather than “homeless families”.
