The Spirit of Giving

This past holiday season, Delco Foods made tribute donations to two organizations in honor of our customers… Back On My Feet and The Caroline Symmes Cancer Endowment at Riley Hospital for Children. Back On My Feet is a nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency of homeless populations by engaging them in running as a means to build self-confidence, strength and self-esteem. Their organization consists of much more than just running: their members participate in a comprehensive program that offers connections to job training, employment and housing.

Caroline Symmes was three years old when she was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor Disease. Although this kidney cancer has a 90% survivl rate, Caroline had a very aggressive tumor and there was little in the way of research for pediatric cancers. Caroline lost her future, not because of lack of care or resourcesm, but because of lack of funding for pediatric cancer research. This foundation is the gift she leaves behind so other children can have a bright future.
