LIA Foundation provides gifts through three local schools Submitted photo

In an effort to motivate students to strive for academic excellence, the LIA Foundation (Love In Action), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, held a drawing to donate a 50-inch TV, three bicycles, three PlayStation 4 gaming systems and other toys to children who showed improvement academically and/or behaviorally in class. 


Westside Elementary, Satilla Elementary and Coffee Middle School submitted names for the drawing.  On December 19, 2018, 14 children received their “gifts of love” for the holidays.


LIA Foundation also provides meals to needy children in Coffee County through their Backpack for Kids Feeding Program who would otherwise go hungry during the weekend and holidays when schools are closed.  Through LIA’s Pantry, located at 60 Connector 206 NW, Suite A in Douglas, the foundation provides food for needy families.


Derrick and Chandra Green, founders of the LIA Foundation, state that they have been able to provide meals and other needed items to over 300 families in the community because of their generous donors.
