Give Back Event

Part of the Women in Industry Conference experience was making Lemons of Love care packages and cards for individuals going through cancer treatments. The packages were filled with carefully selected items designed to help with the side effects of chemotherapy, but also some items that just added a little extra love. It was a meaningful way to end the day and we appreciate the thoughtfulness of all the Give Back participants.
