New Wilmington Target Store Donates
to Children's Transportation Fund

A donation to the Aleppo Shriners Children’s Transportation Fund was made from the employees of the brand new Target store in Wilmington, MA. The team members of the store held raffles and sold baskets to raise the money, $1,027 to be exact, and chose Aleppo to be the recipient. Aleppo Recorder Ernest Pearlstein was presented the check from Target Team Leader Tom Leach during the ribbon cutting ceremony with Wilmington Town Manager Jeffrey M. Hull.

Flipping Out At The Circus!

      The fried dough smell is gone, popcorn is no longer popping, and the elephant smell is no longer wafting around the building. Yup, the Aleppo Shriners Circus is all done. Don’t be sad though, it will be back next year!
      It was another great successful circus here at the Aleppo Shriners Auditorium to start off the year. Volunteers were bustling around the building selling concessions and novelties, running fried dough and popcorn to the stations, and facepainting smiling faces.
      A new addition this year was the Hamid Circus who did an amazing job. They brought the elephants, it wouldn’t be a circus without them, acrobats and aerobatics, hula-hoops, balancing acts, trained dogs, quick change, and a special one that stole the show - the Chicago Boyz, who were finalists on America’s Got Talent. Hamid put on a great show.
      The Aleppo Clowns were of course out in full force all week, signing autographs and taking pictures. The clowns had two skits they performed during the circus, and a special appearance in the last act with the Chicago Boyz. The Chicago Boyz came running and launched off a trampoline and over High Tower, and then a handful more clowns were invited over to stand in a line and the Boyz did it again launcing over them in the final act.
      Some of the Units came to lend a hand: the Motor Patrol sold novelties, the Lighting Unit manned the lights, Director’s Staff popped corn, Rag Tops had concessions in the lobby, and the Cycles fried dough. There were many many more volunteers who always do an awesome job. For those who came and volunteered during the circus, thank you again for the help and we hope you had fun!

Your Shrine Hospital Transportation Fund Needs You! 

How can I help?

Nobles All,

We are entering into another year where the Aleppo Shrine Hospital Children’s Transportation Fund is expected to raise and expend an excess of $300,000.00 dollars. These funds are mostly voluntary donations and are the result of your hard work. Though they are Shrine Hospital Funds and fully deductible, they are distributed locally to aid and transport children in our two Massachusetts hospitals.

The cost to Aleppo for one acute care flight to our Boston Hospital is now approaching $50,000.00 per flight. Our largest fundraiser is the annual North-South Football Game and nets the Transportation Fund about $70,000.00. As you can see, this amount barely covers one flight. The remainder of this money is raised from the contributions of our Shrine Clubs, Units, paper Crusades and Can Tabs.

If you are a new Noble or an existing one willing to help, there are many avenues you may and get involved. We always need help manning our Paper Drivers and collecting Can Tabs. The time requirements can be as little or as much as you have to offer. If you need more information or assistance with any of the above, send me a note to; Aleppo Shriners, Attn: Ernest A. Pearlstein, 99 Fordham Road , Wilmington , MA 01887. Or call 978-657-4202 ext. 213. I will answer any questions you may have and try to guide you to the choice that is right for you.

To our Shrine Clubs and Units, we thank you for all that you do. While costs are constantly on the increase, please consider a new fundraiser or an additional day for an existing one. Our Shrine Hospitals and children have come to rely on our support and it is our hope to meet any request sent from them without delay.

Remember, our aim is not just to raise money but to educate everyone we can of the wonderful things our Hospitals do for the children and to find new children in need of our services. The rewards far outweigh the time spent helping those who so urgently need our support.

We thank you for your efforts in the past. We expect great things from you in the future and we know your hears will swell with  the knowledge that you have promoted your Shrine Hospitals and helped the children so desperately in need of our services.
