La Leche League does not exist to raise money. We raise money in order to exist. La Leche League relies on memberships and donations to pay for the vital services we provide in YOUR community. Please help us make sure that La Leche League is still around when your children or grandchildren need breastfeeding information, encouragement and support. If you are an expecting or breastfeeding mother, a grandmother, a doula, a childbirth educator, or a health-care provider who supports breastfeeding, then La Leche League of Whittier & Downey needs you to support our services in your community. When you become a member or donate to LLL of Whittier & Downey, the group keeps 100% of the money to put towards leader training & education, our library and any other expenses the group may incur. That means your money stays right here helping families in YOUR community! LLL Leaders are NEVER paid for their services and LLL meetings are always free to attend. Thank you for your generosity and support of breastfeeding!
