Employees of the nation’s leading exterior home remodeler exceed $750,000 fundraising goal in the first day of month-long corporate giving initiative
CHESTER, Pa. — July 16, 2019 — Power Home Remodeling (“Power”), the nation’s leading full-service exterior home remodeler, announced today that its 2,600 employees across the country have raised a record $1,050,000 in donations for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for various forms of childhood cancer. Employees exceeded this year’s fundraising goal of $750,000 in the first day of the campaign alone, bringing Power’s total contributions to ALSF over the last nine years to $3.2 million.
Since 2011, Power employees have celebrated “Alex’s Month” in June by making payroll donations, hosting kickball tournaments and organizing a variety of other events that generate awareness and funds for ALSF. A portion of this year’s proceeds will go toward Alex’s Lemonade Stand Travel For Care program, which provides financial assistance to families who need to travel long distances so that their child can receive treatment.
“Eight years ago, we learned about Alex Scott and the lemonade stand she opened to help other children like herself battling cancer,” said Adam Kaliner, co-founder of Power Home Remodeling. “Alex’s bravery and strength in the face of adversity, as well as her entrepreneurial spirit, are values that our organization embodies. While we are thrilled to be donating more than $1 million to Alex’s Lemonade Stand this year, our fundraising work for this important cause is far from over.”
In addition to fundraising, Power employees donated their time to local hospitals by visiting patients currently receiving treatment at childhood cancer centers. They hosted talent shows and benefit concert featuring their colleagues, paint nights, golf and volleyball tournaments and a multitude of other activities open to the public. Across its 16 offices, Power’s Long Island offices was this year’s top fundraiser with $109,338 collected throughout the month.

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $140 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
