WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — On Wednesday, A.C. Moore stores are pairing up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise awareness and funds to combat children’s pediatric cancer.

Come to any store and get inspired to use your creativity for a cause to trick out your lemonade stand!

Also on Wednesday, all proceeds from a free, in-store tote bag craft will go toward Alex’s Foundation.  From 1 to 3 p.m. kids can create a special design on their tote bags for free while learning more about holding their own lemonade stands in support of Alex’s Foundation.  Shoppers can also donate to the foundation by purchasing paper “lemons” at checkout.

Photos and lemonade stand projects can be found at acmoore.com.  You can learn more about the foundation at alexslemonade.org.
