Charity Pros: The Founding of the Organization
Shriner has Brad Maloney back from Charity Pros. Charity Pro’s help the Healthcare Providers and First Responders on the frontlines from the Pandemic. Brad’s daughter started the charity group Charity Pros back in 2019 before the pandemic started to advocate for social causes for children. When Covid hit Brad lost a close friend his daughter took this moment to do research. In her research, she found that we were losing many front-line workers and first responders to Covid-19. However, all the fundraising and corporate sponsors were failing to help the children of these fallen heroes. This was the spark needed to repurpose the charity raised to help those in need the most.
Charity Pro’s: What They Do
Charity Pros helps advocate support groups and programs for Children in Health Protection, Poverty, Education, and Equality. They also work with Megan’s Wish Program, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions enriching their lives.
They host community events and activities include concerts, festivals, home shows, expos, and more. Working with multiple non-profits they volunteer work for children’s programs. Charity Pro’s supports many local organizations in the communities and national ones as well.

Join us for one of these amazing community events to honor our Heroes. Every day, we hear about the tragic stories of the front-line health care workers and first responders that lost their life to Covid-19 while working, protecting and fighting for each one of us.
