Friday Kid’s Pak

index.phpWe had the pleasure of interviewing Nancy May, President and Sharon Edleman of Friday Kid’s Pak. As a part of a A Heart Like His Foundation, Friday Kid’s Pak is a weekend food program for local homeless children. A Heart Like His Foundation, Inc. was established to change the world for hungry and starving children. These children have no control over their homelessness or family situation – they are innocent in their circumstances. These at risk children are fed in school during the week, however many leave school on Friday not knowing if they will eat a meal before returning to school on Monday. Friday Kid’s Pak goal is to provide these children a Friday Kid’s Pak containing: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, 2 fruit cups, 2 milk boxes and 2 juice boxes. The children will receive their Friday Kid’s Pak from a school administrator every Friday during the school year.  Please listen to this interview to find out more and hear their mission to change the world.

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital

downloadOn this week at Forum for Nonprofits we had Don Eachus, the development director for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Foundation. For the past seven years on a Sunday morning in February, thousands of people have gathered at Miramar Regional Park, united by one common cause – to support Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital at its annual Tour de Broward event. Now in its eighth year, the need is greater than ever to raise funds for South Broward’s only pediatric hospital, which has become the leading children’s hospital in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In Fiscal Year 2016, JDCH cared for children needing 61,607 hospital outpatient visits, 7,455 pediatric surgeries, and 9,538 admissions and observation stays. Funds from previous years have supported the hospital’s Heart Institute, which provides children with a complete continuum of care from diagnosis to repair of congenital defects and other cardiac dysfunctions. It houses the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program, one of only two of its kind in South Florida. Funds have also supported programs for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, helping to improve the lives of many oncology patients and families. However, the need is greater this year because funds raised will help support programs throughout Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, as it aims to grow in the community and continue to expand services. They can be reached by phone at 954-265-3454, or on the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital website here. To listen to the program in a new window click here: Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital 02/14/2017
