   The Chico Children's Endowment Fund, a program of the North Valley Community Foundation, has presented a check for $5,000 to the "Wings of Eagles"  - Joseph Alvarez Foundation for Seriously Ill Children.

   "Wings of Eagles" was established in June of 1993 by Georgia Alvarez in memory of her son Josephm who died of a rare form of leukemia.  Since then, the non-profit organization has raised more than one million dollars to help hundreds of North State Children and their families as they deal with serious, life-threatening illnesses.

    Alvarez says, "We always want people to know that money that is raised locally, stays local. It is exciting to get to help people, but it is really only possible because of the support of the community."

     The Chico Children’s Endowment Fund is dedicated to benefiting children in Chico and its surrounding areas.  It presents grants year-round to organiztions that help children.  Since 2016, more than $70,000 in grants have been awarded local organizations.
