Full-service dietary supplement manufacturer Lief Labs announced that its non-profit donation program Lief Cares has currently raised $8,000 and provided valuable nutritional supplements to support the ALS community.
Lief Cares focuses on providing nutritional support to vulnerable groups such as those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Other Lief Cares initiatives have included “Essential Workers Immune Support” and “First Responders Immune Support” programs, the latter of which involved Lief formulating and distributing more than 1,000 bottles of supplements with immune-boosting vitamins to first responders in Southern California.
Lief Cares’ 2021 ALS initiative is conducted in partnership with Axe ALS. The goal is to donate supplements formulated for nutritional support to members of the ALS community.
Axe ALS is an awareness organization founded by Eric Stevens and his wife, Amanda. A former Los Angeles firefighter and football player, Stevens was diagnosed with ALS soon after marrying Amanda.
“We understand that the unique needs of people challenged with ALS often require them to use supplementation to help support their nutritional needs,” Nate Cox, Lief’s chief business officer, said in a statement. “Lief Cares was happy to specially formulate and manufacture a nutrient support supplement to donate to the ALS community, as well as help raise money and awareness for this very worthy cause.”
