Since 2004, Robin Hood families and children have been raising funds by opening lemonade stands across the NYC tri-state area. It’s a wonderful introduction to the importance of caring for our neighbors and demonstrates the difference that even young children can make to help others.

Getting started is easy: Just request a Lemonaid kit from Robin Hood, grab your family, and set up your stand on a sunny day. Be sure to request your kit by Monday, July 24, 2023!

How it Works

Grab some markers and poster board and explain how you, together with Robin Hood, are fighting poverty in NYC. For the tastiest lemonade, stir up one of our easy recipes! And, don’t forget the ice!

Woo your neighbors by offering free lemonade! Then kindly ask for a donation of their choice. 

Make it clear that you feel passionate about fighting poverty. Get prepared to answer some basic questions about Robin Hood or those living in poverty in NYC.

Enjoy lots of lemonade with your friends and neighbors. Nothing is more memorable than a great afternoon with your family!

Let us know how it goes! Send an email to, along with any photos of your stand. Please mail in the funds you raise via check, payable to Robin Hood. THANK YOU!
