The Foundation is inspired by the memory of Brittany Miller, a Middletown, New York girl who on July 31, 1996 — her seventh birthday — died after fighting a spirited battle against brain cancer. As part of her treatment Brittany had to undergo the hour-plus trip to Westchester several times a month for treatments. No local hospitals provided the sophisticated treatments she required. After Brittany was diagnosed with cancer in July 1995 her parents discovered that, in addition to the emotional drain on families in their situation, even families with good medical coverage find that the lodging, food and other miscellaneous expenses can prove quite a hardship.

Funds raised will not be used to pay for the child’s actual medical care; rather, donations will be made to families for other “hidden” costs, including hotels, restaurants, tolls, gasoline and other miscellaneous expenses incurred by families who must take sick children to hospitals or other facilities for frequent treatments. The Foundation raises funds and disperses the same to families from the New York counties of Orange, Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, and Pike County PA who have children diagnosed with cancer. Specifically, the funds are to be used to defray travel, lodging, food and miscellaneous expenses associated with visits to hospitals or other treatment facilities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut or elsewhere as is approved by the majority vote of the Board of Directors.

People for People is a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York. Its purpose is to provide temporary assistance to residents with ties to the Times Herald-Record's readership area, which covers Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties, N.Y., and parts of Pike County, Pa. The People for People Fund was founded in 1985 by the Times Herald-Record and the Junior League of Orange County as a means of helping people in our communities help each other. Most operating costs, such as rent, utilities and office supplies, are paid for by the Times Herald-Record.

The fund is staffed by trained volunteers and supervised by a paid part-time executive director. Since its first campaign in 1985, the Times Herald-Record's People for People Fund has distributed more than $4.4 million through the year 2014. The fund is audited annually by an independent firm of certified public accountants.
