Like last year, Navstar has proudly adopted families in need this holiday season. This year, we have teamed with Teardrops to Rainbows and will be adopting two families, each of whom has a child with cancer. T2R (www.teardropstorainbows.org) provides support, services and financial assistance to area children with cancer and their families. T2R plays an active role in helping families through the many stages of treatment for a life-threatening illness, specifically focusing on helping families stay connected and better manage their day-to-day household responsibilities while supporting a cancer-stricken child. This is an organization that Navstar has gotten more involved with this year, and one that I know touches many hearts.
Because of their child’s illness, these families often struggle to make ends meet; sometimes the only Christmas some of the children have is the party T2R hosts at the hospital. For many, it will be hard to provide a special holiday for their children this year. We would like to help make their season brighter! You will be able to donate gifts from the wish lists (see below), or make a monetary donation so we can shop for gifts. As a team, we will wrap and deliver the presents.
If you choose to purchase gifts or donate money, you can drop them off at the corporate office, or we are happy to come to you and pick up!! The gifts must be delivered by Tuesday, December 18th, so we need to wrap no later than Monday, December 17th. We can’t imagine a better way to embody the holiday spirit than to bring joy to sick children’s faces. Please be generous and join us in helping our families this year.
