LILAC's mission is to serve the underserved and underprivileged populations in our communities. What began with critical support for medical professionals and first responders who are fighting for us, evolved into direct outreach to high-risk communities such as seniors, veterans, the homeless and disabled, schools, and with special attention being given to the disproportionately affected BIPOC communities locally and beyond.
Whether it be providing PPE, meals and water, or raising workers’ and patients’ spirits through letters, cards, artwork, and videos created by the community, LILAC is devoted to a multi-disciplinary and wide-scale approach of affecting change and instilling hope, all through the mobilization of our local communities.
In addition, we've donated thousands of dollars to various organizations internationally to purchase the necessities to fight this pandemic, including addressing the food insecurity created as a result of the pandemic.
Since the spring of 2020, LILAC has been on the mission to serve the dire needs of communities globally through our best efforts. So far, we have raised over $102,000, donated over 200K PPE and hundreds of meals to over 60 organizations, impacting tens of thousands of frontline and essential workers, seniors and veterans, students and teachers, and the disproportionately affected BIPOC communities.
