The "YOLO Strong Foundation's 2018 goals are to raise awareness, funds and make meaningful impacts in the lives of children at The Morgan Center (Hicksville, NY), Angela's House (Hauppauge, NY) and with Danny's Wish (Elmont, NY). We will also assist families in hardship brought to us by Contractors for Kids (Islandia, NY) and St. Dominic's Outreach (Oyster Bay, NY).
THE MORGAN CENTER, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing preschool age children who are undergoing treatment for cancer the opportunity to interact and socialize in a safe environment that stimulates cognitive and social development. Children on chemotherapy treatment have a suppressed immune system, and could otherwise risk infection and serious illness by attending typical age appropriate preschool programs.
Funds raised by YOLO Strong Foundation, will be allocated to the tuition of TMC so that children on chemo can also attend preschool.
DANNY'S WISH provides life-enhancing experiences and resources for kids and families dealing with autism and autism-related spectrum disorders.
Funds raised by YOLO Strong Foundation, will be allocated to providing iPads (with special software) for underprivileged non communicative children with Autism.
CONTRACTORS FOR KIDS (CFK), is a not-for-profit corporation founded for the purpose of providing assistance to families in our communities. Their goal is to assist children and their families overcome obstacles that have unfortunately changed or have impacted their lives through the sickness, injury or death of a child.
Funds raised by YOLO Strong Foundation, will be allocated to specific families to give hope and reassurance for their future.
ANGELA'S HOUSE, is 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that assists families caring for children with special health care needs that are medically fragile, chronically ill or living with a life threatening illness. Their mission is to identify families caring for their children who may have a severe disability or medical condition.
Funds raised by YOLO Strong Foundation, will be allocated to helping these sick children with necessary medical devices and services needed to improve their quality of life.
ST. DOMINIC'S OUTREACH provides many services to the parish and works in conjunction with numerous community organizations throughout the Town of Oyster Bay. Some of the services provided include: Food, Clothing, Transportation and Financial Assistance (for fuel, rent, medicine, etc.).
