BENEFITING: FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND FOUNDATION
The Footprints in the Sand™ Foundation is a 501 c (3) non-profit,organization that is dedicated to helping Rockland & Bergen County families who have been affected by a recent tragedy. This includes anything from a parent being diagnosed with an illness to the child being diagnosed with an illness.
This foundation is amazing because they assist the families with the never ending piles of medical bills and issues surrounding the tragedy. For example, in the past, the foundation has bought a wig for a woman who was going through chemotherapy and had lost all of her hair, they have set up a webcam for a mother who was too ill to leave the hospital on her son's wedding day, and they have sent a family to Disney World before the mother's degenerating eye disorder caused her to become blind.
Helping Local Children Survive Times of Crisis. Their mission is simple: to serve children in need. By supporting and locating programs that directly benefit the health and well being of their grantees, the Foundation is working to better the lives of children and their families.
The organization was founded in 2003 by the Villafranco Family to memorialize the death of William Ryan Villafranco.
