Some of the things we've done over the last 25 years have been raising funds for children to participate in community based programs such as Little League, 4-H, scouting, soccer, boxing lessons, karate, summer camp programs, hockey, football, basketball and skiing lessons to name  just a few.

The Foundation encourages children to learn as much as they can about themselves, their history and their environment.We've sent children to Plymouth Plantation, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Children's Museum, The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Old Sturbridge Village, The Louisa May Alcott Orchard House, The Harvard Museum of Natural History Lego Land Discovery Center and many other educational and inspirational places.
Our foundation has been able to obtain passes for all of these places, however, this depends on availability.


The Holiday Season Gift Donations
Each year we collect gifts for children especially during the holiday season. If you would like to donate a gift for one of our children please send us an e-mail  on our contact page. Over the last 25 years we've collected and donated  thousands of toys and other gifts to children and youth all over Massachusetts. In times of national tragedy we also send toys and gifts to children and youth affected.
