Dozens of Scarsdale children supported the Robin Hood organization on Saturday June 9 by setting up lemonade stands to sell drinks and goodies to support a great cause. Robin Hood contributes the funds from the "lemonaid" initiative to underprivileged children who live in local urban areas, to provide meals, medical help, nutritional information, schooling, shelter, and legal counsel for those in need. The organization’s efforts highlight the1.8 million New Yorkers that live below the poverty line and the 59% of babies born in NYC who are born into poverty. Every year at this time, organizers send out kits and “lemonaid” T-shirts to all parents and children that want to take part in this program to sell lemonade to benefit children in need.
