Celebrating 22 years of making a difference.
Our mission is to support families with financially meeting the needs of their children. By supporting trusted 3rd party agencies, we are able to fulfill personalized requests for educational and recreational scholarships, clothing, medical needs, and so much more.
Throughout the year, we receive requests from teachers, resource offices, school staff, and other agencies on behalf of children and families.
These requests can be anything from a new pair of glasses and winter boots, to medical supplies.
Annual Backpack Program
The Miller/Tracy Children's Foundation was established in June of 2001. The organization was formed in memory of Elizabeth "Lizzy" Marie Tracy, her aunt, Kimberly Balboni-Miller, and her uncle, Carl "Chip" Miller. In July of 2001, Lizzy, Kim and Chip were returning from the Roger Williams Zoo when they were involved in a tragic motor vehicle accident.
Each summer, we work closely with agencies in the Greater Boston Area to provide 200+ students (Pre-K through 12th grade) with new backpacks, school supplies, clothes, underwear, and shoes.
Families provide request forms, meaning that we purchase items for each child based on their likes and interests!
Each year, we provide seniors from Watertown High School and Avon Middle High School with scholarships to help them further their education.
In the past, we have provided scholarships for students pursuing careers in the trades, working towards associates degrees and attending 4 year colleges and universities.
