The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Mercy Multiplied is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Mercy Multiplied is a nonprofit Christian organization dedicated to helping young women break free from life-controlling behaviors and situations, including eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, unplanned pregnancy, sexual abuse and sex trafficking.
Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.
“The funds will go towards food, cooking supplies and toiletries for the girls,” said Kerri Phillips, Community Relations and Development Manager. “We are incredibly thankful for the Lyon Cares Foundation; you are helping in transforming lives and restoring hope for these young women.”
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Mercy Multiplied, which goes above and beyond to help young women,” said Lyon Real Estate President Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
In 2018, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000. Lyon’s Sierra Oaks office chose Albie Aware to be the recipient of their grant.
