According to the release, sales raised more than $78,000 in 2023, which helped fund scholarships to support children’s education. Since the organization’s founding, $300,000 in grant money has been raised, and the grants range from $250 to $4,000 per family, Chu said.

According to its website, LexFun, which began in 1942, seeks to enrich the lives of families with young children in and around Lexington and provide support to members and the communities they serve.
