The Footsteps of WNY “Capes for Kids” program sends personalized handmade superhero capes to children with Cerebral Palsy who have had surgery or are doing physical or occupational therapy.
Our hope is that the cape encourages our new hero and their parents to continue in their efforts to meet daily challenges with strength and a smile because we all know that heroes come in all sizes and each have their own special powers and abilities.
Every cape is crafted and hand-stitched by volunteers using donated supplies.
The capes are also personalized with the child's name or first initial on the back. Each of our “Superhero Kits” is specially packaged and comes with a note of encouragement for the child and parents.
