LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Salvation Army is holding a summer-long fundraiser at lemonade stands around Lexington to raise money for its emergency shelter.

The nonprofit group has a goal of raising more than $60,000 with its annual LemonAid Days program.

LemonAid stands will be at the entrances of Wal-Mart stores in Lexington, and throughout July, Lexington kids will host their own stands, with proceeds going to the Salvation Army of Lexington’s Hanger Lodge.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1m8X6WR) LemonAid Days raised more than $49,000 last year, when 1,600 kids registered their stands. As of Tuesday, more than 320 kids had registered to host stands this summer.

According to the Salvation Army, 1,123 adults and 436 children were housed in its emergency shelter last.
