Thorntons partnered with Lemonade for Life to help support families dealing with Type One diabetes and pediatric cancer.
On Sat., July 30, 2016, Thorntons partnered with Lemonade for Life to host the first community-wide Lemonade Stand fundraiser.
The event, which ran from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m., was held at 13 Thorntons locations across Louisville, in addition to several other community partner locations.
Volunteers were stationed throughout the Louisville area, including at several Thorntons’ locations, providing lemonade in return for donations. Because of the support of several organizations including Coca-Cola Consolidated in Louisville, customers received a bottle of Dansani water along with a to-go pack of Crystal Light lemonade mix. Giving back in the community is a top priority for Thorntons, and they are proud to partner with Lemonade for Life, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping families in the Louisville area ease the financial burden of dealing with Type One diabetes and pediatric cancer, and the Kids Cancer Alliance. All grants will be given to families in the Louisville community.
