THE CHARITIES WE SUPPORT
The Shriner's objective is to support their Children's Hospitals which provide quality medical treatment at no charge for any child to age 18. Shriner's Hospitals provide medical care at 19 orthopedic units and 3 burn centers throughout North America. One of the newest Hospital Units is located in Tampa at the University of South Florida Campus.
The Thieves of San Lorenzo have a variety of events and projects benefiting the Egypt Shriner's.
