It is a great pleasure to announce that on December 1st, 2018, Rachel Concitis stepped into the role of Regional Administrator of Leader Accreditation (RALA) for the Great Lakes Region (LLL of Eastern Pennsylvania, LLL of Indiana, LLL of Michigan, LLL of Ohio, and LLL of Western Pennsylvania). Contact information for Rachel can be found in the Administrator Directory.
After the devastation of the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico in September 2017, LLL Alliance sent a request for donations to help Liga de la Leche de Puerto Rico. Leaders rose to the occasion and contributed $732.50 (after PayPal fees). We were able to supplement those donations through the LLL Alliance Heart-to-Heart fund, which was created to help Leaders affected by natural disasters. $500 was sent in November 2017 and another $500 in March 2018.
Leaders in Puerto Rico are still struggling to recuperate. They want to ensure optimal infant and young child feeding practices through individual breastfeeding counseling and support group sessions, as well as by providing breastfeeding relactation materials and baby kits.
The Leaders are excited about a series of workshops being offered in ten affected towns in the south and southwest of the island with the theme of “Breastfeeding in Times of Crisis and Emergencies.”
Liga de la Leche de Puerto Rico would like to continue working together so they can continue developing a lactating society and especially keeping babies breastfeeding in times of emergencies. They would still appreciate any help. If you would like to help support the efforts of Liga de la Leche de Puerto Rico, click HERE to donate.

The October/November LLL Alliance Shout Out Goes To…..
Co-Leaders of the LLL of Dyer County Group in TN
Over the summer Allyson and Hollidy experienced a growth of five times the Group’s previous monthly contacts and a 500% increase in the Group finances! How did they do it? Through outreach, publicity, and by putting the FUN in fundraising!

LLL of Chapel Hill, NC
Leaders from the Chapel Hill Group worked alongside the Carolina Breastfeeding Institute in conjunction with the USBC for Chapel Hill and Carrboro NC to earn the Breastfeeding-Family-Friendly City Designation. The towns are two of the first cities in the country to receive the Breastfeeding-Family-Friendly City Designation.
In earning this designation at least 50 percent of businesses must post “breastfeeding welcome here” signs on their windows. Local groceries also must not promote commercial brand baby formula by preferential placement in the stores or direct advertising.
