Scotiabank and the Kootenay Kids Society are bringing their lemonade stand back to Baker St. today between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Lemonade stand benefits Kootenay Kids

The thirsty and enthusiastic Baker St. crowd purchased over 100 glasses of lemonade and many cookies.

Grandparents, parents, and kids all pitched in to help build a lemonade stand and sell lemonade, homemade bread, and other baked goodies to a very appreciative and supportive Nelson crowd in front of the Scotiabank on Baker St. recently.

Scotiabank Nelson has partnered with Kootenay Kids Society to help raise funds for all the programs and supports Kootenay Kids Society provides for many families in Nelson and area.

Staff at Scotiabank Nelson joined Kootenay Kids Society volunteers to help with the fundraiser and also donated baking to the cause. The thirsty and enthusiastic Baker St. crowd purchased over 100 glasses of lemonade and many cookies.

If you missed out the lemonade stand is back Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with three generations of Kootenay Kids volunteers. Look for them in front of Scotiabank Nelson with their lemonade stand and bake table. For every dollar they raise, Scotiabank is matching with funds up to $5,000. Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a charitable donation receipt from Kootenay Kids Society.
