Matthew’s Hearts of Hope has three goals; we seek to raise awareness to the #1 birth defect, Congenital Heart Defects (CHD’s), raise much needed funding for Research and to offer support to families affected by CHD. We are always looking for good, committed volunteers to help us achieve these goals. If you would like to help, in any way, please contact us.
Some of our needs are listed below, but we will never turn away anyone that shares our passion and dedication to help CHD Warriors, honor CHD Angels and make a difference with this disease.
“Hug a Heart” Pillow Project: We are looking for people who would like to organize a “Hug a Pillow Project” for your school, or group. Additionally, we need people that can help with the pre-fabrication process; cutting patterns or pre-sewing the Heart Pillows before stuffing.
Fundraising: in addition to our Board of Directors, our Fundraising Committee plans and executes various events like our Annual “Giving from The Heart” Gala. We also hold many smaller fundraisers during the year at churches and sporting events (hockey and baseball games, etc.). If you would like to join our fundraising committee or have an idea for a fundraiser that would benefit Matthew’s Hearts of Hope, please let us know.
