The Sharing Heart Award is given to an individual, organization or business who has helped and supported families of medically fragile children in the community. Zachary’s Mission is proud of the many families we help each year through our 3 core programs thanks to amazing community support. As much as we love to share all the good we have done, we understand that the needs are greater than any one organization. There are many families with medically fragile children and each one has unique challenges. That is why we at Zachary’s Mission feel it is important to recognize others who share their heart and make a difference for these families.
