Omega Service Maintenance: Emmanuel Cancer Foundation

Based out of New Jersey, the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation has been supporting children with cancer and their families both emotionally and financially, since it was established in 1983. Omega Service Maintenance has an established history of sustaining the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, among other charities, with regular donations. Through its team of professional caseworks, the foundation offers advocacy services, emotional support, and counseling. With four regional centers, ECF also provides material assistance by collecting and distributing food, clothing, and household items and emergency financial assistance through fundraising for families faced with unexpected crises. ECF works primarily with families in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New York that are referred to the organization by the major hospitals in those states. All of ECF’s services are free to families with children suffering from cancer, including leukemia, neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, brain tumors, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and retinoblastoma. The Emmanuel Cancer Foundation recently benefited from the Second Annual Ocean City Walk in honor of Mitchell McAllister, a young man under the care of ECF who passed away at the age of 17. Mitchell’s mother, Marie McAllister, chaired the event to raise money for ECF in recognition of the foundation’s tremendous support of her son and her family. ECF provided counseling not only to Mitchell, but also to his parents and his four siblings during a time that was extremely difficult for all of them. Staff members of ECF also supplied the McAllister family with gift cards to Acme and ShopRite in their time of need. Even after Mitchell’s passing, ECF remained in contact with the McAllister family to help his parents and siblings cope and to let them know they were not facing their loss alone. Omega Service Maintenance is proud to be part of such an invaluable organization, helping to make a difference in the lives of countless children and their loved ones.
