Lainie’s Angels New Travel Assistance Program & Meijer Donation

Posted on Jan 25, 2022

Since our relocation to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2013, I have been working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Michigan and Indiana. LLS has become a partner in the growth of Lainie’s Angels, helping us to reach out to parents whose children are currently battling blood cancers. I am excited to announce the creation of the Lainie’s Angels Travel Assistance Program, in cooperation with LLS of Michigan and Indiana.

Since our relocation to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2013, I have been working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Michigan and Indiana. LLS has become a partner in the growth of Lainie’s Angels, helping us to reach out to parents whose children are currently battling blood cancers. I am excited to announce the creation of the Lainie’s Angels Travel Assistance Program, in cooperation with LLS of Michigan and Indiana.

This fund will provide families in need with a $500.00 dollar voucher to be used for travel expenses. Currently, we have raised $15,000.00 dollars to launch the fund in early spring, with a total fund-raising goal of $100,000.00 for 2022. This goal will allow us to provide 200 families with much needed transportation funding for doctor’s visits, hospital stays, shopping and much more. We are grateful to LLS for recognizing the need parents have for support and their commitment to helping us create the travel assistance program in Michigan and nationally.

Community Recognition for Lainie’s Angels

Lainie’s Angels was the proud recipient of a $5000.00 dollar gift from the employees of Meijer Corporation, a mid-western grocery store chain, with 258 stores in six states, and their philanthropic foundation, Meijer Community. Meijer employees voted between four different organizations and chose Lainie’s Angels to receive a gift this year. We are grateful to Meijer and their employees for this generous gift, the proceeds of which will be applied to our Lainie’s Angels Travel Assistance Program this year. Thank you Meijer Community!
