Support Hanks Hope and its mission to support Delaware communities. Our goal is $1015- October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
Hank's Hope was founded in 2015 by Anne Mathay in memory of her son, Henry "Hank" Shaffer Mathay. Hank was stillborn in 2012, and Anne and her husband knew that doing was their way of grieving.
Currently, Hank's Hope serves families in all three counties. Hank's Hope holds an annual Wave of Light Remembrance and Celebration on October 15th (Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day). Care bags, education, literature, and grants are provided to hospitals throughout the state. Hank's Hope received the Lt. Governor's Health and Wellness Challenge award for it's contributions to the community.
