1. Adopt-a-Family & Shop
Update: All families and young adults are now adopted - thank you for your big hearts! If interested in still lending a hand, we would be grateful for your support in shopping for a toy or gift card as outlined below.
Since COVID-19 started, 30 children have been diagnosed with cancer here in our community. ASK estimates that at least 40-50 families with a child on active treatment could use extra support during the upcoming holiday season. Adopters will receive a wish list from the family to shop from. Gifts will need to be wrapped and delivered by December 14th to the ASK office at 5211 West Broad Street, Suite 102. Drop-off times will be coordinated following social distancing guidelines. Your generous gifts will alleviate stress while providing comfort to families taking care of a child with cancer.
2. Purchase a Toy for a Child or Gift Card for a Teen
Help us get ready for this year's socially-distant ASK Holiday get-together by purchasing a new toy valued $25-$30 of gift card of equal value (Target, Walmart, Amazon, Michael's, Old Navy, DSW, Starbucks). No stuffed animals, please.
Toys and gift cards can be shipped or dropped off during a scheduled time by December 4th to the ASK office (5211 West Broad Street, Suite 102). We welcome your thoughtful gifts after that date, which we'll use for inpatient visits and to help our kids celebrate treatment milestones and birthdays throughout the year.
3. Don't have time to shop but want to help?
Monetary donations to are always helpful to make sure no family is overlooked, especially those families diagnosed in December. A gift of $30 helps to buy a holiday toy for a child, $300 to adopt a family of two or $600 for a family of four.
