REPORTING: RABBIT ZIELKE
The Austin Hatcher Foundation helps families facing pediatric cancer thrive in the face of extreme stress and hardship. Through educational assessment, counseling and assistance, the foundation works with the entire family as they support each other through this medical hardship.
Finances are tough when a family is living with prolonged medical expenses. All of the services provided at Hatch’s House of Hope are provided free of charge to the families. Part of this cost is offset by a program known as Shopping for a Cause. The event made its debut last fall and the Austin Hatcher Foundation is hoping to see participation grow this year.
Participating area merchants will donate a portion of specific purchases made during the event which begins August 15th and runs through September 30th. This event promotes local business while also supporting a very worthy cause.
