A note to family and friends from Damon Roderer:

The first time I visited a FISH Hospitality Pantry, and saw so many families coming for food help, I knew I wanted to do more to help provide food for those in need.

When my 10th birthday came I took my birthday money gifts and donated them to the FISH Pantry so they could provide more food to hungry people.

Then, that Summer, I had the idea of selling lemonade and cookies and other snacks to people coming one day to my Dadís office building. I sold lots of Lemonade that July day, and from Dadís office, I telephoned friends and family and offered to deliver lemonade to them for a donation to feed the hungry in Knoxville. Many wanted to participate in helping feed local hungry families and pledged to send donations for the cause.

Soon after, as a result of all the help from all who participated, I was able to present a check to FISH for $4000.00. In 2010, the project raised $13,200 as more kids (and adults too) got involved and several restaurants participated by inviting donations from their customers and offering them a free glass of lemonade.

Probably edit here?? .....................
Last year, LemonAid Stand Day raised more than $25,000 to support FISH Hospitality Pantries. LET'S DO IT AGAIN THIS SUMMER. We are making LemonAid Stand Day an annual event. This yearís date is Tuesday, July 29, 2014.

You do not have to wait until LemonAid Stand Day to make your contribution to support this yearís event. Please send your tax deductible gift to me at the address below. Make checks payable to  FISH Hospitality Pantries:

FISH Hospitality Pantries
800 Northshore Drive
Knoxville, TN 37919

Thanks to special purchases and donated food items, with only $5 FISH can provide a 3-day supply of food to a family of 4. $50 feeds a family for a month. $600 means one family (not the same family) would be eating every day of the year thanks to your generosity.

FISH Hospitality Pantries provides 11,000 food packages each month to families in need from four neighborhood-based Knoxville pantries.

It hurts me to even think about anyone having to go to be hungry. Your generosity will go a long way in helping to make sure that no one has to even miss a single meal. Through this experience, I have learned that if a lot of people work together with a common goal, then they can be almost unstoppable.

Help make this year's LemonAid Stand Day the greatest ever. It will make a great difference in the lives of families needing food. Thank you!

Damon

Damon's LemonAid stand in West Knoxville is anything but typical. He and his friends are on a feeding frenzy. For the second year in a row, Damon is selling lemonade to raise money for the FISH Hospitality pantries which feeds local families in need.

To say business is good is an understatement. The dozen gallons of lemonade are flowing at not one, but 2 locations, his father's business, Rodefer Moss & Co. LLC and Clayton Bank and Trust.

An 11-year-old setting up a lemonade stand on a sweltering summer day isn't unusual.

Raising thousands of dollars such as Damon Rodefer did this week through his "LemonAid Stand" fundraiser is extraordinary.

Barely old enough to add up all those dollars, Rodefer held the event Tuesday for the second year to benefit FISH Hospitality Pantries, an organization that feeds hungry families in the Knoxville area.

With help from some area businesses, the Episcopal School of Knoxville student had by 5 p.m. raised about $12,000, before restaurant tallies, said mother Shelly Rodefer.

At his second annual lemonade stand, Rodefer raised up to $12,000 with the help of corporate sponsors, some area restaurants and several friends. All proceeds are going to the FISH Hospitality Food Pantry, which feeds about 11,000 families a month. Last year, he raised $4,000.
