Among the special birthday surprises (they pay for birthday cakes for unsuspecting families), donate Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts (they just donated 28 bicycles to give to a local church for distribution to children who had need) and donations to the Special Olympics, LLLL also supports Night To Shine, a prom for special needs teens and adults. Each year, LLLL volunteers partner with Stetson Baptist Church, in DeLand, to set up a boutique for Night to Shine VIPs. The VIPs are offered an opportunity to “shop” in the boutique, free of charge, to find just the right gently loved attire to attend Night to Shine a few weeks later. Formal wear is donated by community members and the clothes are passed along to Night to Shine VIPs free of charge. LLLL volunteers spend hours collecting, inspecting, setting up and then helping Night to Shine VIPS find just the right outfit, shoes, accessories and smiles!
Night to Shine is February 7th, 2020. Love Like Lyndsey Loved is currently collecting donations for formal wear and accessories for men and women. Plus sizes are of the greatest need. Pretty Little Things located in downtown DeLand. Has kindly offered to be a drop off location. Donations are accepted through January 4th.
