Project Lemonade provides foster youth with a back-to-school shopping experience and offers support to inspire self-esteem and promote success.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2017, 1,870 foster youth came to the Project Lemonade store and selected their winning outfit thanks to donor support.
“Thank you for all you do for foster youth. Project Lemonade is a huge support to many children on my caseload. Foster youth tell me that shopping at Project Lemonade is one of their favorite days of the year.” —Christina Foley, Child Welfare Services, Teen Unit, Alberta Branch DHS
