The Twinkie Foundation

More funding available to all qualifying families!

The Twinkie Foundation has had a record year for donations, thanks in large part to 5 major donors:

  • Tim Hortons and the Smile Cookie Campaign
  • Steelworkers (USW District 6, Local 2724 and Local 2251) and their annual golf tournament
  • 100+ Women Who Care – Sault Ste. Marie
  • The Dr Lou and Mae Lukenda Charitable Foundation SSM Poker Run.

The Twinkie Foundation now has the available funds to responsibly expand its annual
maximums.

When The Twinkie Foundation was founded, one of its goals was to be fiscally responsible. The foundation started with a $2000 limit per family per calendar year with the full intention of one day increasing that limit as more funds became available. The foundation is extremely excited to announce that today is that day. The Twinkie Foundation, after a unanimous board vote, has approved an increase to $4000 per calendar year per family. The board has also decided that under extenuating circumstances, with a unanimous board vote, the max can be altered or waived. The Twinkie Foundation would like to thank Tim Hortons, The Steelworkers, 100+ Women Who Care, The Dr Lou and Mae Lukenda Charitable Foundation, SSM Poker Run as well as anybody who has supported the foundation so far. It is because of you, the foundation can continue to help more local families in a more substantial way

The Twinkie Foundation is a local registered charity completely dependent on local donations
and grants. We deal with families that are currently facing the challenges of having sick or
critically ill children. We provide financial assistance for food, accommodations, travel, and
other incidentals that are incurred on medical trips so that families can focus on their children
and not stress over financial obligations
