Ostroff Godshall is a Shazam Level Sponsor of the Twilight Wish “Week of Wishes” Event

Ostroff Godshall is proud to be a Shazam Level Sponsor of the Twilight Wish Organization’s “Week of Wishes” Event on Friday, May 2, 2024 at 5:30pm. Founded in 2003 in Bucks County, Pa., Twilight Wish Foundation is a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit organization that grants wishes to economically disadvantaged seniors over age 65 who cannot make their own dreams come true or are permanent members of an eldercare facility. Their mission is to honor and enrich the lives of seniors through intergenerational Twilight Wish celebrations. Their vision is to make the world a nicer place to age, one Twilight Wish at a time.

Wishes can connect a senior to many things: a lost passion, such as getting their book published; people they haven’t seen in years, such as siblings separated for over ten years being reunited in their 90s; and rediscovering their purpose in life, such as returning to the classroom to read to students one more time. Every wish they grant is helping to build a culture that values and respects our senior population.

Ukrainian Refugee Aid

Russia’s attacks on Ukraine have forced over 3 million Ukrainians to leave their homeland. Jon Ostroff, the founder of Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers, is providing and facilitating humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian refugees. In early March, soon after the war began, Jon spent almost two weeks in Eastern Europe. He is now back in the U.S. but continues to offer humanitarian assistance to anyone with friends or family that have left Ukraine or are able to leave but are not sure where they can go.

If you know a refugee that is looking for a safe destination and they are leaving Ukraine through a Polish border crossing, Jon can provide them with options for free transportation and shelter outside of Eastern Europe. To learn more about the brave individuals Jon is helping and how you yourself can help these families, head to this page.
