While we didn't have the opportunity to catch the parade today, we did stop to enjoy the Nimick Family Therapeutic Garden at The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh. It was a beautiful day to enjoy this beautiful space. We also delivered requested items for families staying with their child at The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh, The Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at West Penn Hospital Allegheny Health Network. The support we provide is only possible because of your generosity. ❤️ Thank You #ShareYourHeart #Pens ... See MoreSee Less

We are beyond grateful to all who came out and shared their heart ❤️ It was great a evening at All Saints Brewing Company last night. The amount of donated items that will help us to fill our Zack Packs is amazing. That does not include the monetary donations made! We are so grateful to all of our amazing family, old friends and new friends who came out to support our Zack Pack Program.
Thank you Suzanne Ward and the Rotary of Westmoreland for teaming up with the Rotary Club of Greensburg, PA to make this event happen. Thank you Charley Family Shop 'N Save for labeling 1000 bags that were handed out to rotarians to fill. Thank you All Saints for the cool space and thank you Dominick's BBQ for the delicious meal. Last and not least, we are so grateful to the McQuaide Family for sharing their story with everyone. #ShareYourHeart

Family Stories

"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. “
