Philadelphia, PA – First Heritage Mortgage Services is committed to raising funds for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research.  It was founded by a determined mother to help increase her young son’s odds in his fight against cancer. She had the idea to bake cookies to sell during the holidays. It was a larger-than-life event, and a huge success.

Throughout 2017 the employees of First Heritage Mortgage Services have held several fundraisers for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  One of the more successful fundraisers has been the clothing drive. By teaming with ClothingShoeDrive.com, First Heritage was able to collect and donate clothes to the program to receive funds to go back to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  Over a two-month period, First Heritage Mortgage Services collected over 180 bags of clothing, totaling 2,188 pounds!

Due to their 2017 fundraising effort, First Heritage was able to raise a total of $3,000 to Cookies of Kids’ Cancer.

Pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. Two-thirds of children who do survive will develop long-term side effects, including secondary cancers and organ failure, a result of the very treatments that once “cured” them. Therefore, it is critical we find safer, more effective treatments. And it’s why First Heritage Mortgage Services is joining the fight.
