At LawnAmerica, we do a lot of different things. The primary thing being that we provide fertilization and weed control services to almost 13,000 customers in the Tulsa area. That is the “what” we do, but it isn’t the only thing we do. We provide opportunities. Opportunities to our staff to have a great place to work and provide for their families, but our “what” also provides us with opportunities to support our community.
We have long been supporters of The Little Light House. The Little Light House is a non-profit school that serves families of children with special needs such as autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and many others in a unique program that blends special education and therapy services. They provide these education and therapy services on a completely tuition-free basis and have been since 1972.
Earlier this year we learned of one of their former students, Keith Boyd, who had the amazing idea to set up a Lemonade Stand to sell lemonade. Keith is an amazing 10 year that has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Keith didn’t just want to sell lemonade though. He wanted to sell enough lemonade to be able to donate $250,000 to The Little Light House.
I could tell you about Keith, but he has a great website that tells you all about himself, the idea for the lemonade stand as well as how you can help him reach his goal. I encourage you to check out his website as well as his Facebook page and share it with your friends and family. On his website you can learn more about Keith’s Ice Cold Lemonade and ways you can volunteer and support his efforts to raise $250,000 for The Little Light House.
Starting this Wednesday, June 18th at 10:00am there will be 10 locations across Tulsa operating Keith’s Ice Cold Lemonade Stands. LawnAmerica has the privilege of hosting a stand that will be located on the campus of The Little Light House on the SE corner of 36th and Yale. We will be there every Wednesday starting this week going all the way through August 20th. The hours will be from 10:00am to 2:00pm each Wednesday. Please stop by our location, or one of the others across Tulsa. Lemonade will be available for donation.
There is still a need for volunteers around town at the various locations. If you are looking for an awesome opportunity to volunteer some of your time this summer and to help a worthwhile cause, look no further. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for!
