Donna Hicken Foundation
http://www.donnahickenfoundation.org/
The Foundation raises money to be used exclusively for First Coast women living with breast cancer... who, for whatever reason, can't make ends meet. We have partnered with Catholic Charities, the largest social service agency in the area.  They lovingly screen each recipient to ensure we are good stewards of your donations,  then The Donna Foundation makes the checks payable to the mortgage company, the utilities carrier, the doctors office etc. Here is a testimonial from one of our recipients:
