HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The families we serve face critical illness and many have compromised immune systems. In speaking with medical professionals and social workers, the families need the services we provide now more than ever, and we are dedicated to ensuring they are not alone on their journey.

You're invited to make Cleaning Products Care Bags.  Cleaning Products Care Bags provide families with a variety of cleaning and disinfectant
products, new sponges, and paper products to help parents keep their home clean and safe. These items are crucial for keeping a child who has a compromised immune system safe from life-threatening germs. 

DESCRIPTION

We are grateful to everyone who has helped us be there for the families we serve. As we face the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we are looking at ways to thoughtfully adapt our delivery of programs and care.

We invite you to shop and put together Cleaning Products Care Bags for families!
