Lemon-Aid for Kids Fundraiser

Nothing says summertime like lemonade. Join us Monday, July 10, until Sunday, July 23, as our 17 cafes support Boston Children’s Hospital through a Lemon-Aid fundraiser.

We will donate 25 cents from each Agave Lemonade and Agave Frozen Lemonade sold during this two-week fundraiser to support our Operation Donation-Nation partner, Boston Children’s Hospital.

Plus, join us on Saturdays, July 15, and July 22, from 10 am to 2 pm, as we set-up Lemon-Aid stands at our cafes to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Receive a cup of our Agave Lemonade when you donate at the lemonade stand. The donation will go directly to Boston Children’s Hospital.

Hamra Enterprise’s Panera Bread locations are committed to the communities we live in and serve. Our bakery-cafes are working all year long to raise funds supporting the care and research at local non-profit Boston Children’s Hospital. In 2017, Hamra Enterprises locations raised over $114,000 for Boston Children’s Hospital.

Founded in 1869 as a 20-bed hospital for children, Boston Children’s Hospital has been ranked as one of the nation’s best pediatric hospitals by U.S. News & World Report for the past 21 years. Boston Children’s is the primary pediatric teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and the largest provider of health care to Massachusetts children. For more information, visit:

If you would like to contribute to our efforts, please look for the Community Breadbox collection containers at participating Boston Panera Bread locations.
