Hawk Family Foundation Supports Individuals With Disabilities at Allied Services

Allied Services recently accepted a $15,000 donation from the Hawk Family Foundation. The donation represents a contribution to Team Allied Services and You, an annual charity campaign that raises funds for rehab technology and services benefitting patients and residents of all ages and abilities at Allied Services. The charity campaign culminates on November 6, 2022, when a team of volunteers from around Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania and beyond will participate in the TCS New York City Marathon.

With support from local businesses, foundations, schools, and individuals, the campaign aims to raise more than $300,000 for vital community services and rehab technology at Allied Services. One of the goals of the 2022 charity campaign is to be able to invest in Trexo Robotics, a rehab device that has the potential to help pediatric patients at Allied Services to walk.

Dave Hawk, Chair of the Hawk Family Foundation noted that, “supporting Allied Services provides hope and opportunities for a better quality of life for people in our community. We have seen the positive outcomes of Allied Service’s dedication to rehabilitation. We are excited about the impact that the new Trexo Robotics will have on the lives of children in our area.”

The recent donation by the Hawk Family Foundation is part of an ongoing partnership between the family-owned Gertrude Hawk Chocolates and the local non-profit health system. Gertrude Hawk Chocolates partners with the team at the Vocational Training Center on Allied Services Scranton Campus to provide employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

The Hawk Family Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals and families in Northeastern Pennsylvania through non-profit organizations dedicated to health, human services, education, and arts & culture. Priority is given to organizations serving the vulnerable, particularly children, seniors, those currently incarcerated, and returning citizens.
