Volvo Car USA & Bergen Community College Partner to Launch Alex’s Café in Mahwah, New Jersey
April 13, 2021
Alex’s Café is named after Alexandra “Alex” Scott who raised money to support pediatric cancer research by starting a lemonade stand at four years old amid her own cancer battle. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause. When she passed away at the age 8, she had raised $1 million, which Volvo Cars helped achieve. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) was then born and has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada raising more than $200 million so far, funding over 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer. A portion of every Volvo sold in the United States is donated to ALSF and all lemonade sales at Alex’s Café will go toward the organization.
