      2. Organize your own clothing drive, or raise funds to sponsor a WISH. Bring your donations to the store on Sunday, May 15 before 2pm.

      This is an indoor location in the Lloyd Center Mall and appropriate for families with children 8 and up. Public health guidance must be followed. 

      FREE PARKING: Project Lemonade is located in the Lloyd Center Mall, 2nd Floor next to Visionworks. The closest parking is the parking garage next to Barnes and Noble. Drive to Row 2DD and enter the adjacent mall door.
