We need your help before the visit getting the packages ready with the gifts, picking up donations around town from our supporters.

Painting With Grace
We need 1-2 volunteers to assist us with the painting class while the artist in charge guides the activity. The art program runs during the spring/summer. It's an hour long class for children and adults. Childhood cancer families joined the class for FREE.
We need children and adults to organize hat, book and/or toy drives at their school or work place. We add these items to care packages we sent to children affected by cancer and their siblings. We will help you by providing you with the items needed to run a successful drive.
During the summer Grace sets up a lemonade stand every Wednesday and Thursday on Glenbrook Rd. Children are welcome to come to help her selling lemonade and treats. They can also help by spreading awareness about childhood cancer with our customers. If you are interested on setting up at stand anywhere else, please contact us and we will be happy to share some information with you to run a successful stand to support us.
