When Sheepshead Bay native David Huber, 25, first became involved with the Dream Factory organization four years ago, he was just a college student interested in volunteer work. Since then, their mission to make dreams come true for critically and chronically ill children has left a lasting impression on him.
So much so, that he has decided to take on a leadership role and establish the first-ever Brooklyn chapter, located in Sheepshead Bay.
Huber’s contributions, like recruiting new board members and volunteers, have been instrumental in granting the dream of Matthew Saltzman, a 13-year-old boy who has been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Matthew and his family went on a dream vacation to Disney World with a new digital camera and souvenir money, provided by Huber and the rest of the Dream Factory team.
Currently, the members of the local chapter are eager to find another Brooklyn-based dream candidate. The criteria is that the child must be between 3 and 18 years of age and critically or chronically ill.
