Zachary’s Mission, a non-profit organization, supports families of medically fragile children by providing basic necessities, financial support and programs that nurture emotional well-being.
Based in the greater Pittsburgh area, we are providing assistance to those families in need right now and you can help too.

- Thank you Anna Marie Kun and fellow Carnegie Mellon students for the Jingle Jar! Over the course of three days, CMU students, living in the dorm residence Donner, collected $100.52 in a floor competition to see who could collect the most change. The winning floor will have a party, courtesy of Donner House Council, once they return from their Christmas break. We hope the winners enjoy their party and thank you for supporting Zachary's Mission!
- We were thrilled to accept a $5000 check from the Dominion Foundation in support of our Zack Pack Program yesterday. The request for our Zack Packs has increased greatly and we are able to grow thanks to generous groups such as the Dominion Foundation. They even put out a Jingle Jar at their Clark Building office and presented that along with the check. Thank you to the Dominion Foundation and all of you for supporting Zachary's Mission!
- We had a great time at the 2014 Zachary's Mission Gala. Thank you to everyone for helping us to support families of medically fragile children. Enjoy the photos by Michael Hamby.

"We just wanted to take the time to say thank you. We received your backpack on the first night of our hospital journey. I have to say it really came in handy because I didn’t have anything to shower with and my fiancé hadn’t had food since early that morning. Thank you!"
"I have a family that I have been working with here at Children’s since the day I started in this unit. They are a very lovely family that is unfortunately in a very sad situation. This family was able to benefit from meal vouchers from Zachary’s mission. The family is extremely grateful and wanted me to share their gratitude with you. The support that you provide through your gifts is appreciated and helpful in so many ways. Thank you."
"We received a gas card from your foundation when our twins were in the NICU at West Penn. Just wanted to say Thank You!! You have a wonderful organization and I am in the process of trying to get a fundraiser setup at my work. I hope to get some funds over to you so you are able to help more families in their time of need! God Bless you all!"
"I received one of the Zach packs from the social worker at childrens hospital. I am a mom of triplet girls and they have never been home. my life is the hospital.... I want to thank you for doing this awesome work on behalf of your son. It is people like you that make people like me smile and have hope and comfort. God Bless you."
"Hello. My daughter was a patient at the West Penn NICU in 2013. During her stay we received a Zack Pack stuffed with toiletries, treats and so many thoughtful personal items that made pacing the halls of the hospital much more comfortable. During her stay, I was very emotional and stressed I couldn't remember what day it was let alone remember to pack a bag for the hospital. She just celebrated her first birthday. We still use our Zack Pack to get her to and from daycare."
"Words cannot express how much your services mean to us, your Zach Packs and gas cards have assisted many of our families. “
