SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. -- Sunkist Growers based here is joining forces with Fullerton, Calif.-based Albertsons in support of the supplier's Take a Stand national cause-marketing campaign.
In its fourth year, Take a Stand has empowered thousands of kids throughout North America to give back to their local community by raising money for a charity of their choice through a good old-fashioned, freshly-squeezed lemonade sale.
Albertsons and Sunkist will work together to further support the charitable efforts of kids in select cities by building awareness and donating lemonade supplies.
Since May, Sunkist has been providing complimentary lemonade stands, delicious lemonade recipes and tool kits to kids who pledge to use the materials to raise money for charity. More than 10,000 requests have poured in from kids throughout the United States and Canada, the company said. Due to overwhelming demand, Sunkist said it will make an additional 5,000 stands available in celebration of the first weekend of summer.
Participating Albertsons stores in Los Angeles, San Diego, Palm Springs, Bakersfield, Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo, and Las Vegas will support kids with their "Take a Stand" lemonade sale beginning on "Take a Stand Day" on June 21 and throughout the summer.
The Albertsons division of Minneapolis-based Supervalu operates 538 Albertsons and Lucky supermarkets in Idaho, Montana, Southern California, Southern Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
