Come join us for the next O.K. Fund Fundraising Brunch on Saturday, September, 12, 2015
The O.K. (“Our Kids”) Fund was established to add a program of support for needy children and teens within our membership and the American community at large.
The idea for the O.K. Fund began during a conversation with a member whose grandson, after a long battle with cancer, finally became cancer-free. We have all experienced the pain of illness within families and friends, but few encounter the heartbreak of a child in need of medical help to exist. Recently the Benevolent Foundation made a donation at a community fundraising event for infant triplets within the Polish-American community who lost their father, thus helping their mother meet some immediate financial stresses. This past summer, we contributed items for “Christmas in July” for about 200 children who were patients in cancer wards in San Francisco. Such instances encouraged the establishment of the O.K. Fund, which can be made available to a family through private application to be reviewed and awarded by the Board of Directors.
The First Annual fundraising brunch was held at the Victorian in Elmwood Park, New Jersey this past October. Should you wish to volunteer for this year’s event on September 12, 2015 or contribute to the Fund, please contact the Home Office at (201) 935-2807 by phone, email firstname.lastname@example.org, mail a check, or visit us at 333 Hackensack Street, Carlstadt, New Jersey 07072.
