CCRF Champion Spotlight: Christian R. & Mary F. Lindback Foundation
Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation is proud to announce a new partnership with the Christian R. & Mary F. Lindback Foundation of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Lindback Foundation has sponsored CCRF’s three valuable core programs: Bear-Able Gifts, the Helping Hands Fund, and the Camp Scholarship program. With the grant from the Lindback Foundation, CCRF will be able to provide gifts for children in the hospital receiving treatment for cancer, provide their families with financial assistance during this most trying of times, or send those children to camp when they have achieved remission.
The Lindback Foundation was established in through the generosity of Christian R. Lindback, as a testamentary gift. Mr. Lindback was the president and principal owner of the well-known Philadelphia-area company, Abbotts Dairy, in business for 108 years, until 1984. The Foundation, named for Mr. Lindback and his wife, Mary, focuses on both education and other charitable services provided to Philadelphians in need.
Headquartered in New Oxford, PA, the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation supports children under 18 and their families facing the hardships of cancer. The foundation performs acts of care and kindness through the following programs: Bear-Able Gifts (largest distributor of gifts to children with cancer in the U.S.); the Helping Hands Fund (provides emergency financial assistance to families); and Camp Scholarships (allows children in remission to reconnect with activities they love). With a national pediatric hospital partner network of 215+ locations, the foundation directly helps more than 16,000 children affected by cancer and their families every year.
