We can not always build the future for our youth, but we can build up our youth for the future. It takes a village, join ours today!
Here at Pink Lemons, through our donations of suitcases and basic essentials, empowerment workshops, educational scholarships or unique experience like traveling aboard, we are helping youth, finish the phrase, “ when life throws you lemons…”
Pink Lemons is here to serve foster care children in northern, central, and southern Illinois, and under-resourced and underprivileged youth throughout the inner-city communities of Chicago.
When Youth in care, age out of foster care on their 18th birthday, these children are provided a black trash bag to pack up whatever belongings they may have. These trash bags send the wrong message to children whose biggest desire is to just be part of a loving home. Our suitcases provide dignity and help send a different message. A message that communicates that you are not alone and others care!
