Austinites have until the end of this week to support local foster families through Foster Village’s annual fundraiser, Growing the Village is Sweet.

The nonprofit supports foster families by sharing resources, connecting families to build a system of support, and advocating for foster families in the community.

The event earns dollars for the nonprofit in a particularly summer-like way: lemonade stands.

In addition to lemonade, some Austinites are even selling lemonade-themed items (think: bath bombs, seltzers, and donuts).

To support their efforts, keep an eye out for a lemonade stand in your neighborhood or visit participating businesses like Fitzhugh Brewing, Flight Ice Creams, or the Deep Eddy Vodka Tasting Room.

If you’d like to support foster families after the event, Foster Village accepts help year-round in the form of volunteering and donations.
