Lillie’s Foundation was organized in 2014, from the vision of Darryl G. Allen, Board of Advisors Chair, who was raised by his grandmother. Both Mr. Allen and his wife Mrs. Cassandra Allen were both raised by “Lillie’s” and thus in 2014, The Lillie’s Foundation for Change was established to honor the work, service and lives of Lillie Mae Allen Young and Lillie Geraldine Hurst.
Mr. and Mrs. Allen have experienced firsthand the impact of unconditional love, support and rearing from grandparents. They know the struggles and sacrifices it takes for retired and aging grandparents to raise grandchildren. Their direct testimony is what fuels the passion of Lillie’s Foundation.
In partnership with sponsors Twanda Black of KISS FM 104.1, Atlanta City Councilman Michael Julian Bond, Atlanta Women and Men of Distinction Inc. and Devin Farrow, Lillie’s Foundation for Change helped to distribute over 50 turkeys to families in need at the Darryl Allen’s Plus Design Center on November 24, 2015.
