Taking a Bite Out of Hunger: The Ace Lemon Challenge

Posted by Tonia Nifong on Wed, Dec 24, 2014

One in seven children in El Paso County doesn’t get enough to eat, and Colorado Springs area Ace Hardware stores aim to make a dent in that number.

You may remember the ALS Ice Bucket challenge from this past summer to raise money and awareness for The ALS Association. In the same vein, Ace Hardware - Unitah Gardens is putting on the Ace Lemon Challenge. For every video posted to the store’s Facebook page of a person taking a bite out of a lemon, and their resulting sour “pucker” face, the store will donate one dollar, up to $500, to Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado.  All videos must be labeled with the hashtag #AceLemonChallenge.

To help this cause, Berwick Electric Co. employees were pleased to take a bite out of a lemon! Check out our video below.
