Cool down with Lemonade Day(s) May 5th and 6th

Each May, Down Syndrome Academy students build and run lemonade stands all over Houston. Beyond being a great fundraiser, it’s part of our vocational training. Students plan, work as a team, learn customer service, engage in money handling, etc. If you can’t visit us in person for a long tall drink of lemonade, please consider donating online.
