CHESTER, Pa., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Power Home Remodeling Group, the nation's third largest home remodeling company, is pleased to announce the company raised $123,000 during the third annual company-wide Power Month for Alex's initiative in support of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer. More than 1,300 employees from 16 states across the country dedicated themselves to raising awareness and collecting donations for this tremendous cause in a series of events last month. This marks Power's most successful Power Month for Alex's initiative in the company's history, raising 43 percent more this year than in 2013.
"We are so thrilled with the success of our third-annual Power Month for Alex's. Each year, I'm truly inspired by our remarkable employees who fully embrace ALSF's mission and devote their time and energy to make a difference for thousands of kids just like Alex," says Corey Schiller, Power's Chief Executive Officer. "From our employees who took the time to coordinate inter-office lemonade stands across the country, to the top producers in our Chester, Pa office who spent their free time hosting stands during weekends in June — our employees truly rallied together to raise awareness of Alex's story in an effort to help families facing similar hardships."
A complement to ALSF's National Lemonade Days initiative in June, Power Month for Alex's features several events and fundraisers in local communities throughout each of our markets, from inter-office lemonade stands and volunteering at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to hosting families affected by cancer at Power Night at PPL Park and offering donations via a company-wide payroll deduction. Power employees were also instrumental in manning the phones at the eighth annual Alex Scott: Stand for Hope Phone Bank, a day-long telethon that aired live on June 5 from the CBS 3 studio in Philadelphia, where Power presented a donation to ALSF on air.

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 $80 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 450 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
