Social Worker Program
The Barkann Foundation will begin the New Year by partnering with The Danaher Lynch Family Foundation and its scholars who participate in DLFF’s programs from Conwell-Egan Catholic High School to show our gratitude to the Social Workers that we work with throughout the year.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic impacted us back in March of 2020, we all have done our best to show our gratitude to our heroes who work in the medical and healthcare communities. Let’s keep that momentum going…
At this time, we hope that you will join us to show our love, support, and gratitude to a profession that rarely ever gets recognized, yet goes above and beyond the call of duty for the patients and families they advocate on behalf of every single day of the year.
We are coming together to thank every single Social Worker who works within the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and many of it’s facilities throughout the city and surrounding counties.
The DLFF Scholars have been making handmade cards expressing their gratitude. These cards will be delivered to each social worker along with a special gift from The Danaher Lynch Family Foundation.
For our part, The Barkann Foundation will be making a very special gift on behalf of the Social Workers at CHOP who have asked for financial support to help bolster funds for the Social Worker Emergency Fund.
This fund is especially paramount right now as Social Workers have had to utilize the fund throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help families with gas cards, bus and car fare, clothing, meals, lodging and any many other items needed to help parents or guardians care for their family.
We ask that you please consider supporting our Donation Campaign to help provide monetary assistance to this very important fund as a way for all of us to acknowledge the tireless efforts of our colleagues who work for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Social Work Department.
We will deliver the cards, gifts and a check from The Barkann Foundation to the Head of Social Work at CHOP in March-just in time for Social Work Month!
Thank you for coming together to help show our love and gratitude to a wonderful group of colleagues who are selfless and are asked to go above and beyond the call of duty every day of the year in extraordinary ways to help families who are being treated at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
