Founded in 2021 by community leaders Tessa Effland and Nicole Andres, the 4 the Love Foundation was born out of a shared vision to strengthen our community by helping our neighbors in need. Recognizing the power of collaboration, Tessa and Nicole united their efforts and resources, creating a powerful network that provides a soft landing for those facing hardship. Joined by six dynamic, passionate women, our team is committed to filling in essential gaps and addressing the challenges that exist right here in Thurston County. Our mission is to foster unity and advocate for all those in need, believing strongly that in unity, we rise. We encourage everyone within our network and beyond to join us in this community aid endeavor. Together, we are making a transformative difference, one act of love at a time.
