How To Help Local Families Fighting Cancer This Christmas
Miles Perret Cancer Services needs your help in making Christmas a little brighter for local families fighting cancer. The Giving Tree is an annual gift giving program for children 18 and under who have cancer or have a parent/sibling with cancer. Ornaments hanging on the Giving Tree list a child’s wish (usually one toy and/or one item of clothing), age, and gender. Generous businesses, groups, and individuals choose ornaments, shop, and return unwrapped gifts to MPCS. Volunteer elves will even wrap the gifts for you! If you’re too busy, you can donate money and MPCS will do the shopping for you!
How to Give:
Visit MPCS at 2130 Kaliste Saloom Rd. or call to request one or more ornaments from the Giving Tree. There are over 100 ornaments still remaining on the tree! Each ornament has a child’s wish item, age, and gender on the back; all gifts should be within the $35 limit. Gifts need to be returned to office by Monday, December 7, 2015 so the elves have time to wrap and distribute to families for Christmas.
