6,000 Toys Sent to Children in the Hospital
New Oxford, PA — August 31, 2017 —The continued generosity of individuals and corporations across the United States has allowed the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation’s (CCRF) Bear-Able Gift Program, to put smiles on the faces of children living with cancer. Those smiles help to make the life of a child with cancer more bearable and hopeful while receiving treatment.
During the 3rd quarter, the Bear-Able Gift Program delivered 6,499 toys and gifts to 32 hospitals across the country to help brighten the lives of 2,460 children living with cancer. Volunteers from the Visiting Nurse Association of Hanover and GFWC Mechanicsburg assisted the CCRF staff in packing and shipping each Bear-Able Gift!
The Bear-Able Gift Program distributes items such as games, toys, crayons, coloring books, video games, puzzles, books and teddy bears — all kinds of things that make children smile — to hospitals and oncology centers across the country. The program makes CCRF the largest supplier of gifts to children in North America who have cancer. It relies solely on donations of new and unwrapped toys.
There are a number of ways in which individuals and businesses can help support CCRF’s Bear-Able Gift Program; they include sponsoring a toy drive or raising or donating funds.
