The next Chapter
After 30 years of dedicated service to the fund that he started after the passing of his mother in 1992, Tim and his board are finally ready to step down and turn this organization over to be run by a new team. A team with a new focus and recharged enthusiasm. This new team is no stranger to fund raising or supporting youth with a serious illness. This new team is a group of men who have all worked together in the past with the same focus of supporting families with a child battling a serious illness. The THOH has worked with this team in mutual support of local families over the years. The focus of the new team is to build memories for these children and their families through various outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing trips. These trips are focused on making a memory for the entire family in an outdoor setting with the harvest of an animal only being part of the total adventure. The new Team has agreed to keep the same mission statement and not limit their support to only outdoor activities. The future is bright for the Three Hands of Hope and this new group will continue with many of the established activities that supporters have come to look forward to each year. The golf outing will continue each year in June with the 7th annual outing being planned for 2022. THOH will sport a new logo that is based around the original logo but incorporate a slightly new look.
It has been a true labor of love to honor my Mom (Ilene Malloy) for all of these years. The Fund has supported hundreds of families, distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars and provided Scholarships to nearly 30 families at Pequea Valley High School. We helped establish a youth baseball tournament that ran for 10 years, a 5K run that lasted for 5 years and an annual golf outing that continues today. When my Dad passed away last year, I decided it was time to step aside and let a new group take control of the Three Hands of Hope. Without the support of my wife (Lesly) and my two children (Devon who served on the board for many years and designed our original logo, and Timmy who supported the organization for 20 years) it would not have been possible for me to dedicate so many years to this wonderful cause. The THOH is in good hands and I am confident it will continue to do GREAT things and have a huge impact on the community that we live in.
