"We grant dreams to critically and chronically ill children from the ages of three through eighteen".
The Dream Factory is a large wish-granting organization across the United States and there is a chapter in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Volunteers raise funds within their own communities and then use them to grant the dreams of local children. The organization does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illnesses, but also to children with chronic illnesses and disorders as well.
The ultimate aim of the Dream Factory, and its large team of dedicated volunteers, is to create lasting memories and an inspirational experience for the children and families alike.
If you would like to donate of volunteer, go to the website. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to find out more.
We are pleased to be able to support The Dream Factory of Brooklyn through the Taste of Fifth Event. Don't forget to buy your tickets and choose this charity.
Local Schools in Park Slope
We are supporting four schools through the Taste of Fifth Event, all based on or around #theother5th. Public schools rely on private funding (via their PTA/PTO) to help hire additional staff and to provide enrichment programs (music, art, etc.).
