How We've Helped

Lenny’s Friends With Wings Foundation Makes a Difference!

Through donations and various fundraising efforts, Lenny’s Friends with Wings Foundation’s main goal is to help children and their families with a maximum benefit of $2,000.  The social workers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and St. Christopher's Hospital will coordinate the requests.  The family completes the application and the social worker signs the form and faxes it to the Foundation.  The child chooses their top three items and the parents submit the bill to be paid.  The Foundation will buy the child the gift and pay the bill.
