C.A.R.E. IS WHO ARE.
Sweethead Naturals C.A.R.E Foundation was founded in 2013 by Lawanda Brooks to support a dear and close friend who was challenged with breast cancer. Both of Lawanda’s parents were also challenged with cancer in the past - her mother is a breast cancer survivor twice and her dad died of liver cancer.
Lawanda’s heart was grieved by the huge financial burden this brought on her loved ones and the loss of her dad. As a result, supporting those who are faced with the devastating impacts of cancer has become a heartfelt mission of Lawanda’s - to support at least one individual a year through the challenges that come with battling this horrific disease.
Sweethead Naturals C.A.R.E Foundation is committed to active involvement in philanthropic endeavors that strive to make a difference in the community as well as the world in a heartfelt way, by caring for people and supporting local charities. Knowing we play a vital part in bringing out the best in people brings out the best in us. Giving to those within our community is one of our greatest assets and we want to set an example of generosity for others, so together we can impact our Community, bring Awareness, and provide Resources for Everyone.
“In Service To Make A Difference”, quote by Lawanda Brooks, founder.
