Raider Relief has been doing “good” within the local and global community since around 2009. In the past, Soles for Souls, Hugs for Haiti, Help to Others, March Makeover and Bottle School Blitz have been great successes, benefiting wonderful non-profit organizations. This year, Raider Relief is partnering with Alliance Ventures, the Regula Center at the University of Mount Union and the United Way of Greater Stark County to bring you Lemonpalooza, a community-wide lemonade sale in Alliance on Oct. 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
A cup of lemonade will cost $1. Twelve lemonade stands will be set up in front of various businesses along State St. Volunteers from the University of Mount Union and the community will be running the lemonade stands. United Way’s annual campaign runs until Nov. 29. Eastern Division Campaign Co-Chairs Gerard and Phillip Mastroianni are volunteering their leadership on the United Way Campaign Cabinet, chaired by Thomas Swidarski, to further campaign efforts in the Alliance and surrounding area.
Alliance United Way agencies, including the YMCA, YWCA, SPARK, Interfaith Child Development Center, and the Domestic Violence Shelter, receive more funding from United Way than any other city in Stark County. Unfortunately, Alliance has the smallest number of annual donors to the nonprofit organization. The goal of Lemonpalooza is to raise funds for United Way of Stark County while promoting awareness of their presence in Alliance. The proceeds will be dispersed to United Way agencies throughout Stark County.
