    We’d love to hear from you!


Zachary’s Mission, a non-profit organization, supports families of medically fragile children by providing basic necessities, financial assistance, 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.

Our hearts are full and so are our Zack Packs thanks to the students and staff of Central Elementary. They host an annual toiletry drive to raise awareness of congenital heart defects and to honor the memory of AJ Kahler. Enough items were collected to fill this Month’s Zack Packs which were dropped off for hospital families yesterday. We are grateful that this special group shared their heart with the families we support. #ShareYourHeart #ZackPacks #LittleRedJournal #AJ ... See MoreSee Less

UPDATE: The Kobry's family and friends raised over $9,000,00 yesterday and they are still counting! The Spaghetti dinner was a success with 300 guests and 48 raffle baskets. They wanted Zachary’s Mission to be the recipient of the outpouring of love and support from all of their family and friends for helping them get through the hardest 2 months of their life. They said that the Zack Pack is what helped them and inspired them to give back so all proceeds will benefit our Zack Pack Program. It is an honor to be chosen and heartwarming to think of the many families we will help because they shared their heart. #ShareYourHeart #Grateful #Family #ZackPack #LittleRedJournal ...

Last week for Valentine’s Day, I had the pleasure of volunteering for Zachary's Mission through UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. It was the most amazing experience and I got to meet wonderful babies and their families. Thank you for letting me be a part of the “Baby’s First” program ❤️❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

“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.”
