    Let's Make Lemonade!

    Sunbeam Kids is participating in “Lemonade Days” again this year to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation move one step closer to finding a cure for all children with cancer!

    You can join in by hosting your own lemonade stand any time between June 4 and June 12, anywhere in the metro Milwaukee area. All the money raised will pay for research to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer and we'd love to see stands all over the area. We'll even share the location of your stand in our efforts to spread the word if you want us to! 

    Everyone is welcome to join this project.  Interested in learning more or signing up? 

    Visit this page to register your stand as part of the Sunbeam Kids team: https://www.alexslemonade.org/mypage/2811279. Click the “members” tab and then “Join the Team!” There are lots of great resources there to learn more about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and help you plan a great lemonade stand. Last year  Sunbeam Kids families raised over $900 working together - let’s see if we can pass $1000 this year! 

    In addition to the resources through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, we'll share tips from kids who have had success in the past to help you have a fun and a productive day(s) o fundraising for a cure! 

    We'll be in touch with everyone who signs up, but they the links below offer everything you need to get started planning. What a great way to kick off summer :)

    Can't sign up this time? Watch for details on a stand near you!

    Think Green, Keep It Clean!

    It's a fact of life... Litter happens. And things can really pile up during the winter months. But that is where our Sunbeam Kids families can help! We will be heading down to Lakeshore State Park on Saturday, June 4th from 9-10:30am to clean up trash and debris found around the park.

    We will be greeted by staff members from the park who will review some safety information then groups will head out around various areas of the park to pick up unwanted materials. Members are encouraged to bring their own garden gloves, buckets, and pickers, if they have them. Some supplies will be available to borrow upon arrival.  We also suggest packing water & sunscreen!

    Lakeshore State Park is located along Lake Michigan, near the Summerfest Grounds.

    It's time for another at-home project!  Sunbeam Kids families are invited to make bag lunches for the Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach.  This project has been extremely popular both as an at-home project and an in-person project. 

    Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach is a small but mighty group of individuals who conduct street outreach for the homeless three nights per week, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. In addition to a hot meal, the group provides friends with a "lunch for later". Our homeless friends really seem to enjoy the brown bag lunches.  Sunbeam Kids has signed up to provide lunches on Sunday, June 5th.

    Each lunch should contain the following: 

    • Sandwich (pb&j or lunchmeat, no condiments please)
    • Soft fruit such as tangerines, bananas, plums, etc. (Fruit cups w/a spoon are good too)
    • Chewy granola or protein bar
    • Individual bag of chips
    • Sweet treats! Examples: pre-packaged brownies, pudding, cookies, etc.
    • Water flavor packet for bottled water drinks
    • String cheese, beef sticks, etc.

    Other suggestions could be pre-packaged containers of fresh veggies w/dip, pudding cups, applesauce, crackers, trail mix, etc.

    With the current COVID-19 situation, Street Angels asks that bag lunches are prepared in a clean environment using social distance precautions. When dropping off bag lunches on the night of outreach, please drop off in bags or boxes that you will not need returned. To keep with social distance, we ask that you place the lunches by one of our buses, which our team will place on the bus.

    Each family who registers will be asked to supply the contents for and assemble 8 bag lunches for the Street Angels program. Bag lunches MUST be delivered to Street Angels at 5:45pm on the day of outreach, Sunday, June 5th. Their location is 1236 South Layton Blvd, in the rear parking lot. There is no local drop off option for this project.

    Summer is coming soon and 'tis the season to be working outside!

    We are excited that warmer weather has finally arrived and we can go help out our friends at Green Power Garden on Friday, June 24th from 9-10:30am. Volunteers will be preparing the garden, planting, watering, and helping maintain a healthy & vibrant growing environment in the garden. Volunteers should bring their own gardening gloves & water bottles, masks are optional.  

    Green Power Garden is a volunteer led program that donates all of their veggies to area organizations to get fresh food in the hands of people who need it. One of their main recipients is HOPE Center. 

    This project is open to all ages. Hope you can join us!
