Charity

In addition to our scholarship program, the Southern Loss Association supports charitable organizations within our community.  Our volunteers work throughout the year to raise funds, which are donated at the events we sponsor or at the annual holiday season luncheon.  If you would like to make an individual contribution directly to one of the organizations we have sponsored, you may use the links below. 

The Lighthouse Lymphedema Network

The Lighthouse Lymphedema Network (LLN) provides assistance to those unable to afford compression garments and bandages locally, and with a worldwide reach; publishes quarterly newsletters; holds annual educational conferences for patients, caregivers, therapists and other medical personnel; and donate new and gently-used compression garments and bandages to therapists in third-world countries. They participate in various health and wellness fairs, lead a cheering station for the annual Georgia 2-Day Walk sponsored by It’s The Journey, and join in the annual Gloria Watts-Cox Foundation Walk/Run for Lymphedema.  LLN has a wonderful team of volunteers who assist those in need by providing necessities to manage their condition, much of which is not covered by insurance.  Please make a donation directly to their website at:
