The Lily’s Hope Foundation supports babies, children and their families with urgent needs due to premature birth through involvement with the March of Dimes as well as helping families directly. Since Lily’s birth, , Lily’s family has worked closely with the March of Dimes to give back by fundraising to help other babies that share Lily's experiences. Students in CEC are making additional fundraising efforts for Lily’s Hope Foundation by selling raffles for novelty baskets to the College community and hosting a movie night before the walk.
