Local Propane Company Partners with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
September 3, 2013
Adding to our already successful and very recognizable "Pink" bobtail, GasTec is excited and proud to announce its partnership with another organization with roots in the Philadelphia area, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer. We have wrapped one of our newly added trucks to reflect the front yard lemonade stand that ALSF creator Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004) set up to raise money to help find cures for all childhood cancers. Being a family oriented company, we're happy to embrace the spirit and mission of young Alexandra who believed that everyone is capable of making a difference. As we make propane deliveries with this new addition to our bobtail fleet, a portion of each gallon delivered will be donated to ALSF and we’ll be raising awareness at the very same time, encouraging people to learn what ALSF is all about.
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 $60 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
