Mission Statement:

The PattyG’s Help For Heroes Foundation provides financial assistance to an individual/family member who has been afflicted with illness, injury or a crisis situation.  This assistance will provide relief to an individual/family member serving their community in law enforcement, first aid, fire department or are enrolled in a police academy.  Recipients of this aid are selected first from our local community, then county, and then expanding statewide through referrals. 

The Foundation also honors the memory of Officer Patrick James Gornik of the Oceanport, New Jersey Police Department offering an annual scholarship to a student graduating from Shore Regional High School pursuing higher education.  Recipients of this scholarship are selected by committee.

If adequate funds are raised for the Foundation, donations may also be made to testicular cancer research.
