Launching in May 2020 in response to a community facing Covid-19, LYNPs first project provided reusable handmade masks to
neighbors in need. As demand continued to grow, LYNP donated 2,000 masks and bottles of hand sanitizer within a few short weeks.
The needs of those facing financial hardships are growing each day and accessibility diminishing quickly. Our communities are divided and not finding common ground as we collectively experience life. And so, the idea to create a platform that brings neighbors together was formed.
LYNP, a nonpolitical registered 501(c)(3), is about community supporting community — neighbors are empowered to do good through hyper-local social goodness. We connect to social goodness in a three-prong approach:
LYNP connects community by bringing events to life
LYNP brings opportunities to our community
LYNP equalizes accessibility for neighbors facing financial, mental or physical stress by creating projects with our Connected Neighbors, while, through fundraising, cover a project's expense
The message behind our name is simple … stand with community and love your neighbor!
LYNP is a grassroots nonprofit that creates opportunities that connect community
We are proud to say ...
97% of all money raised goes into our community
We have connected our community to social goodness over 3,250 times
Social goodness is how we describe everything good that connects us to others: the goodness in being social. The words we use to sum up: integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, and empathy. The words that describe meeting neighbors where they are, not where we believe they ought to be. It's playing in the sandbox together. It's ending the labeling, judging, shaming, and blaming that happens within a community. It's sharing our humanity with one another and respecting each other even when we don't agree. Social goodness is a willingness to stand with a neighbor whose experiences do not match our own while making room for the experience they are having.
