COLUMBUS – Today, Senator Joe Schiavoni (D-Boardman) introduced S.B. 294, which would designate May 15th as “All for the Kids Awareness Day.” 

The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley has joined a national network of organizations that share a similar mission to proclaim May 15th as “All for the Kids Awareness Day.” This day would recognize and support all families with a child who suffers from an illness or injury that is either chronic or life threatening.

"A strong family and community support system can make all the difference to a child who is suffering from an illness or injury," said Senator Schiavoni.  "By creating awareness on the state level, we would bring to light the tens-of-thousands of families across Ohio and America that are caring for a severely ill or injured child. I would like to thank the Hope Foundation for bringing the pervasiveness of these issues to our attention."

The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley (H.F.M.V.), founded in 2007, is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. It is committed to serving the Valley’s most vulnerable children and families through charitable support.
