The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley is part of a national initiative to raise awareness for thousands of families across America with chronically or terminally ill children.

Last year, Congressman Tim Ryan and other state leaders helped the Hope Foundation make May 15 “All For the Kids Awareness Day” in the Mahoning Valley.

State Senator Joe Schiavoni introduced the bill and Governor John Kasich signed it into law in December 2016.

Last month, Wine for Hope helped raise almost $20,000 for The Hope Foundation to help local families with chronically/terminally ill children – the most money ever raised at the event.
