Lemonade Day Change Drive

This year we’re not just going to make lemonade out of lemons, we’re going to make a difference in Humboldt County’s change shortage! While the pandemic might be able to prevent a single day of lemonade booths, Lemonade Day is more than just a day, it’s a celebration of resiliency in the face of adversity.

To honor that spirit, we are offering an alternative:
The Lemonade Day Change Drive
Monday, August 31 through Friday, September 4.

Participating in the Change Drive is fun & easy! All you need to do is:

  • Safely collect change from family, friends (or anyone who is interested in participating!)
  • Clean & roll the change
  • Trade it in at a participating bank for cash & a gift
  • Send in your results, and you will be entered to win a prize!
  • Decide what to do with your cash: Spend Some, Save Some, Share Some?
  • For more information, call (707) 834-6460.
  • A full list of trade in sites will be available on our website on August 29th

Prizes & Follow Up

The first 500 kids who trade in change will receive a gift from Lemonade Day! And all kids who submit their results to Lemonade Day will be entered to win an additional prize as well.

Now that you’ve traded in your change, what are you going to do with your money? Lemonade Day encourages you to spend some, save some, and share some!

People are more likely to donate change is they know you plan to donate to a good cause. What are you passionate about? Animals, helping other kids, or ??? There are so many nonprofits doing amazing work in Humboldt County. Choose one, and decide how much of the change you collect will be donated to the cause! We’d love to know what you do with your $$$s! You can submit your plan with your results when you trade in your change.

Trade In Locations

Change will be accepted Monday, August 31 through Friday, September 4. A full list of trade in locations and hours will be available on our website on August 29th. Additional information on trade in locations will be added soon!
