Trim-Tex is honored to have had the opportunity to host the Lemons of Love Adventure Night in the Design & Training Center in Lincolnwood, IL. Lemons of Love is a non-profit that donates chemo care packages nationwide to bring some light to those battling cancer. Jill Swanson Peltier, the founder of Lemons of Love, started the non-profit during her own hard-fought win against cancer in 2014. Lemons of Love is based on the expression, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," although with a twist, "When life gives you lemons-laugh out loud."
Lemons of Love is currently building a Cancer Resource Center in Morton Grove, IL that will provide resources for individuals fighting cancer as well as for families and caretakers. The proceeds from the third annual Adventure Night went towards the new resource center as well as to chemo care packages that will be distributed to cancer patients. Lemons of Love raised over $95,000 leaving the charity $30,000 away from paying off the Cancer Resource Center.
