Fred’s Footsteps ESSENTIAL HEROES CAMPAIGN
The Essential Hero Campaign will enable YOU to celebrate the Essential Heroes in your life while raising funds for families through Fred’s Footsteps COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. An Essential Hero is anyone who has been working on the front lines to help keep you, your family, and your community safe and healthy during this uncertain time. We encourage you to nominate ANYONE in your life who you would like to recognize for their bravery and sacrifice during this unprecedented time.
HOW IT WORKS?
For every $10 donated, you can nominate an Essential Hero in your life you would like entered into a raffle for the chance to win a $300 AMEX GIFT CARD. Whether or not your Hero is ultimately selected, all nominated Heroes will be celebrated in a Fred’s Footsteps communication and across all social media channels. All proceeds will be donated to families in the Philadelphia area who are in desperate need of life’s most essential items. Together, we will help Fred’s Feed Families!
Donate, nominate YOUR HERO(ES) in the provided space on the donation form, then spread the word on social media by tagging @FredsFootsteps and use #FredsFeedsFamilies.
COVID-19 Relief Fund Mission:
Parents who work in disproportionately impacted trades, such as retail, home healthcare, factory work, and food service, especially those without PTO or sick days are being especially impacted by COVID-19. For those with a seriously ill, injured, or disabled child, this crisis is devastating. The Fred’s Footsteps COVID-19 fund has been established to help these families with their most immediate needs by providing short term assistance for groceries and household items.
In addition to the fund, families and social workers are encouraged to visit our resource guide to find other local resources to help them during this difficult time.
