OUR MISSIONThe mission of Alyssa's Angels is to do work that reflects the spirit of giving to and caring for others, which was so important to Alyssa Rose Bruno. Funds that are generated will be used to support projects that will directly benefit the most disadvantaged and needy children in the Rochester area. These projects will focus on children who are:
- Victims of abuse and/or neglect
- Experiencing serious medical, behavioral or emotional problems
- Lacking in family or other community supports
Knights of Columbus council #10758 St. Jude the Apostle of Gates has donated $1000 from their annual charity golf tournament to Alyssa's Angels! We deeply appreciate their extraordinary generosity. Board member, Dr. Glen Spinelli, presented them with a 2014 Community Partner Award for their tremendous support of the work that we do for children and families in need!
On July 17th, Alyssa's Angels partnered with our friends Margaret and Matt Schuler to make a substantial donation to Saint Peter's Kitchen. Our contribution will help support their program to provide backpacks and school supplies to needy children in the community of families that they serve. Our sincere thanks to the Schuler family for their kindness and generosity!

THANK YOU!Thank you to Fratelli's Restaurant in Avon for their generous recent donation to Alyssa's Angels! Congratulations to Patty Heffernan and Kathy Murphy who were married on 6/30/12! Patty and Kathy have been huge supporters of Alyssa's Angels. Instead of a wedding gift, they asked that donations be made to Alyssa's Angels. This huge act of kindness raised $2863 for our organization. Thank you Patty and Kathy!!
"A few months ago, Alyssa's Angels provided funds to get an iPad for a family of a young guy who has a chromosomal
disorder. Besides entertainment, one of the main purposes of the iPad was to provide a way to help him communicate,
due to his lack of verbal skills. Well, I went to visit the family this week, and I was able to experience his new
ability to communicate after about 4 years of struggling, during my visits with the family, because of his minimal
verbal skills. It was really exciting for me to be able to experience this for the first time and I know it has
helped him and the family. The mother states is also allows him the opportunity to take and keep photos from his
perspective. He also uses it to keep his favorite songs and games on it which he uses at times of illness or boredom.
I just wanted to drop a short note to let you know you work is impacting people. Thanks again for all you do!"
