Foundation donates to the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital

The Timothy J. Piazza Memorial Foundation gives over $50,000

Foundation donates to the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital

Thanks to a generous gift from the Timothy J. Piazza Memorial Foundation, another donation was made to help the patients of the orthotics and prosthetics department at the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital.

Recently, Evelyn Piazza and Kathy Prager presented a donation of $50,000 in memory of Tim. Their gift helps fund special prosthetic and orthotic devices that insurance will not cover. We are excited for all the opportunities this donation will provide for our patients.

As stated on the foundation's website, “To fulfill Tim's life and career goals, and to give life to his legacy, his family and friends have established a foundation in Tim's memory to help others who are in need. The Timothy J. Piazza Memorial Foundation provides support to those who need prosthetic devices.”

“We are grateful to the caring efforts of the Timothy J. Piazza Memorial Foundation for their commitment and vision,” said Terry Diamond, director of development at the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital. “The spirit of community enrichment is shared by both Shriners Hospitals and the Timothy J. Piazza Foundation. This generous gift will improve the lives of kids treated at our hospital, specifically our patients that have prosthetics, allowing them to live life to their full potential and actively engage in their day-to-day activities."
