The Children’s Cancer Association’s 2013 Hope for the Holidays delivers gifts to local families who have a child / teen currently receiving treatment for a serious illness and are experiencing financial hardship. This year, they are accepting 70 referrals from their hospital partners and are hoping to match as sponsor with each family this year.
You can organize a team of family and friends to sponsor a family ranging from 2 – 4 members to a large family of 8+. CCA suggests you budget up to $200 per family member to cover requests and special needs as well as fun new gifts! You will also be asked to purchase a $100 grocery gift card to the store specified by the family so they can select items for their favorite Holiday meal.
The CCA will provide you with detailed information for the family and each individual family member around November 15, 2013. This will include sizes, color preferences and gift ideas you are not expected to purchase everything on their forms this is meant to be a shopping aide. Gifts should be wrapped and ready to deliver no later than Friday December 13, 2013.
