The Vanhar Foundation was started by Vance and Harley Wilks, a brother sister duo whose mission is to get toys and care packages to sick kids and their families during a hospital stay. The Wilks kids know first hand what it's like to spend time in the hospital, Vance has had his share of stays as he has battled both brain tumors and epilepsy.
Vance's Toy Voyage has donated over 2,000 toys and $1,800 in gift cards to area Children's Hospitals in just three years. Harley's Helping Hands has recently added Parent Packages to the cause, raising money by hosting bake sales. To date, 200 parent packages have been created.
There are many ways to get involved! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on events like golf outings, bake sales and discount days at Browns Lake Golf Course in Burlington, Wisconsin.
One mission very important to Vanhar is bringing awareness to the fight against brain tumors. Vance was diagnosed with a Gangilogiloma in June of 2014. Our hope is that one day everyone will have the same outcome he has had.
This could be your hospital! Send us some info about why you think a child wellness center or hospital should be the next place we donate to! We are looking to expand and would love to hear from you!
