Fred’s Footsteps is thrilled to announce a $18,670 grant from the Legacy Foundation to support our work with families in the Philadelphia region who are struggling while caring for a medically complex child. The funds will be used to support three families in the Fred’s Footsteps program:
- To subsidize the purchase of a van with modifications for transport of a 9-year-old girl with chromosomal abnormality and microcephaly
- To purchase a Rifton Tricyle for a 5-year-old girl with developmental delays and Leigh Syndrome
- For three months of mortgage and utility payments for a 12-year-old boy who suffered a life-changing accident
