LOUX supported the cause “The Mission” a charity of the Holy Archdiocese of Athens, providing 50,000 meals for this cause and will remain at the side of vulnerable social groups.
The objective of “The Mission” program huge and multifarious. Just alone in 2012, the program backed 1.945.010 million people offering, each day 10,000 portions of food or distributing more than 8,000 parcels with the basic everyday essentials.

The ultimate goal, is to inform as many people as possible about the charitable work of "Mission", and to stimulate this perception and for greater social solidarity and mutual aid by all.
LOUX stands by and supports the fire-stricken residents of Ilia
In response to the devastating fires that hit many parts of the country in the summer of 2007, LOUX took on the initiative of assistance to affected areas of Ilia, which received the most extensive blow.
By giving part of the proceeds from each 1,5lt bottle beverage during the period September-December 2007, LOUX managed to raise funds that were then made available for the creation of basic infrastructures in villages devastated by fire in the area of Ilia.
More specifically, in the municipal district of Livadaki in the municipality of Alifeiras, which suffered tremendous damage, the students were forced to transfer to the Elementary School of Amygdalion, which inevitably become a bigger campus, considering the fact that they only had two rooms to begin with. LOUX undertook the design and construction of a third classroom as an extension to the current school building, thus replacing the temporary construction that was placed to make this accommodation.
In the neighbouring municipality of Figaleia, LOUX undertook the construction and bought all the relative equipment for an outdoor basketball court located at the High School of Figaleias, with free access to all the students of the Municipality.
Choosing to aid the Municipalities of Alifeira and Figaleia occured after specific proposals of the local government of Ilia.
