The second grade girl scout troop at Sol Feinstone Elementary ran a very successful book drive this Spring with thousands of books collected, sorted, and boxed up for delivery to needy schools. These books were delivered to three different Philadelphia area schools as well as a fantastic after school writing program run for children in an area of Philly where programs like this are needed most. The books were put to immediate use this Spring, and will be in those classrooms for many years to come. Thanks to the girl scouts, their leaders, and all of the many in the community that donated their books!
The DiMedio Foundation again sponsored two families through the Saint Nicholas Project. These families had a nice holiday meal, and many gifts to put under their Christmas tree. In all, the families have six children which enjoyed new bicycles, new clothes, scarves, gloves, and toys for Christmas.
How it works: we all collect used bikes, they recondition the bikes and sell them at the Bike Exchange. Since the Bike Exchange is run by volunteers, nearly all funds from the sale of bikes support the Club's after school programs.
The 2010 Drew's Hope Tennis Round Robin was a huge success! Thank you to everyone involved. We hope to see everyone again soon at our next event!
Drew's Hope Research Foundation was established in honor of Drew Ferrandino. Batten Disease is considered an orphan disease with very little public funding available for research. Drew's Hope is committed to raising funds to support research and creating awareness about Batten Disease. With appropriate funding we can further research to provide a treatment and/or cure for this terrible disease.
The DiMedio Foundation is dedicated to provide opportunity for exceptionally challenged or disadvantaged children. We will support these children by shining a "bright light" of opportunity, fun and laughter in their lives. Email email@example.com for more information on how you can contribute! Thanks!
