Loving Hands Hosts First Virtual Mother's Day Event for Grieving Mothers


Loving Hands Hosts 13th Annual Mother's Day Healing Luncheon for Grieving Mothers

The hour-long May 9 event — which includes musical performances, speakers, poetry, and raffles — will be held virtually for the first time, through Facebook Live.

Kathy Wooten, founder and executive director of the Watts-based organization, has hosted an annual Mother's Day luncheon for mothers who have lost a child since the deaths of two of her own children to gang violence in 2008. Although Loving Hands is unable to host its annual gathering this year in the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization remains committed to offering support and a safe space for mothers to both celebrate and mourn their children during an especially challenging holiday.
