Grammy winner joins growing list of stars to shine light and love on South LA community hospital serving the most vulnerable
MLKCH Moms and frontline workers received the surprise of a lifetime when Grammy-winning Billie Eilish and family (including songwriting brother Finneas) showed up on Mother’s Day to thank them with flowers and vegan food. The gift came via the “Support and Feed” foundation founded by Billie’s mother, Maggie Baird.
The singer, accompanied by her brother, her newly adopted gray pitbull puppy, and other volunteers, delivered vegan burritos and flowers and posed with staff outside the hospital entrance.
“Thank you for being in the frontline fighting for us to stay healthy & also, happy nurses week!!” the foundation wrote on its Instagram page.
