Hope for Henry (HFH) improves the lives of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing carefully chosen gifts and specially-designed programs to entertain, and promote comfort, care, and recovery.

HFH brings smiles and laughter, hope and magic into the lives of these children and their families. HFH was founded in 2003 to honor the legacy of Henry Strongin Goldberg, a Washington, DC resident who died at age seven of a rare, fatal disease. Since that time we have served more than 4,000 hospitalized children.

Hope for Henry sponsors birthday celebrations for seriously ill kids who are spending their special day in the hospital with its new program ‘It’s Your Birthday!’. HFH provides each of our hospital partners with over 20 themed birthday boxes for kids ages 1-21.

For a community service project, volunteer opportunities would include organizing a collection or drive for brand new, unopened themed birthday supplies including hats, plates, cups, napkins, blowers, goody bags, party favors, decorations, and candy. With this mitzvah project, the birthday boxes would then be assembled, decorated, and distributed to local area hospitals.
