RILEY CHEER GUILD TOY DRIVES
Every year the We are Zoe STRONG Foundation collects toys for the Riley Hospital for Children's Riley Cheer Guild in honor of Zoe. The Riley Cheer Guild is a volunteer auxiliary that provides comfort and cheer to patients and caregivers at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health and the IU Health adult hospitals on the academic health center in downtown Indianapolis. Each month, more than 9,000 Toy Room items are given to patients within the hospital.
Because of donations like yours the students at Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi School get to discover how play can move others to do more in their community. Zoe loved her school playground! It is on the school playground where her friendships were made, and those happy memories her classmates have of her will last forever. The We are Zoe STRONG Foundation was able to help the school purchase new swings for their main school playground.
Zoe loved her school and her teachers. She loved to play school at home with her mom, grandparents, and friends, and this is why the We are Zoe STRONG Foundation created the Zoe Nicole Martin Endowment Scholarship.
The primary purpose of the Zoe Nicole Martin Endowment Scholarship is to honor the memory of Zoe Nicole Martin and her time as a student at Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi. With the help of the Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) the We are Zoe STRONG Foundation was able to create an Endowment Fund in her honor and create an annual scholarship to be used for required eighth-grade fees by an eighth-grade student at Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi School.
