Our vision is to provide hope, strength and joy to children and their families during a very difficult time. We partner with our community, our tireless volunteers, and the generosity of many individuals, groups and businesses, to provide a special experience or family necessities to all deserving children who are facing a significant or life-altering disease, injury or medical challenge in our community. 

We would like to acknowledge our wonderful dedicated volunteer team. Their dedication to the GWFC to making lives a little happier is truly commendable!
