Programs: The Foundation for Life is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 by Paul and Mindee Blanco. The mission of the Foundation for Life is to improve the quality of life for the people and families we serve through actions that promote change and deepen connections within our community.
Since its inception in 2006, the Foundation for Life has supported hundreds of organizations throughout the North East who are working to better the lives of those in need throughout the community. In addition, the foundation hosts several of it's own charitable functions throughout the year. One of our favorite programs is Bikes for Kids, We invite children/families out to a free day of family fun where we also surprise them with a new bike and helmet. Under-served children will now have a way to get out into their communities in a fun and healthy way. Our goal is 500 children each year! We have also hosted clothing and food drives as well as playground build programs.
Bikes for Kids is an amazing event, bringing joy to children who may not otherwise get to have a bike of their own. Watching volunteers and families help the children learn how to ride off the baseball field was a delight! Wonderful family day getting to attend a free game and my child truly felt special being able to walk down onto the field for her surprise! Thank you
