In 1983, Mr. Stanley Matthews organized the Greek Children's Fund at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York City to aid needy Greek children and their families who were undergoing treatment. Since its inception, the Greek Children's Fund has helped more than 7,000 families with temporary housing, transportation, medical equipment needs, and miscellaneous expenses. In addition, the Fund expanded its reach to Schneider Children's Hospital on Long Island.
Today, the Greek Children's Fund of Florida is partnering with Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg to serve all children and their families receiving care at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital who are in need of non-medical day-to-day assistance. By helping to pay rent, providing money for food, purchasing a wheelchair or other equipment, or paying for much needed medicines, the Greek Children's Fund of Florida offers a ray of hope to families going through difficult times while their child is in the hospital. Through special events and individual philanthropy, the Greek Children's Fund of Florida will continue to grow and meet the needs of families for years to come.
If you would like to be a part of the Greek Children's Fund of Florida, please contact Mrs. Mary Ann Saravanos, President of the Fund, by phone 727-992-1003 or email [email protected].
