The holidays can be a financially stressful time for any family. Now imagine this stress coupled with a seriously ill child to care for and stacks of expensive medical bills to pay. This is the holiday forecast for many of the Shining Stars families this year.
To help alleviate this holiday stress and turn it into holiday cheer, the Shining Stars Foundation hosts a toy drive and a holiday party each December. During the holiday party, children facing cancer or another life- threatening illness and their siblings can pick out toys to take home free of charge.
The party also features a delicious holiday meal, carol singers and a gift card for each family. The event allows our families to come together and celebrate life, and the toys provide some relief for families under immense financial stress due to expensive medical treatments. For some children, these are the only gifts they will receive this holiday season.
Help make the holidays shine a little brighter for these deserving children! From November 14 through December 16, Shining Stars will be accepting unwrapped gift cards and new toys for children ages 2-20.
For more information call 970-726-8009.
