This December marks the 16th year that Helping Kids with Cancer has held their Stocking Event and Auction to raise money that goes directly to children suffering from cancer and their families. Stockings are designed and filled by interior designers, design students, fashion design students and members of the community. The stockings are distributed at local hospitals to children that are receiving treatment for cancer. Many of these kids aren’t likely to receive much for Christmas given the expense of their treatments and some may not live to see next Christmas.
A silent auction is also held at this event that is made up entirely of products donated by local businesses, artisans and community members. 95% of all contributions to Helping Kids with Cancer goes directly to assisting these families in need. The money is used to provide some basic needs such as gas cards for transport to oncology treatments, care bags for families that discover their child’s illness and are rushed to surgery, partial payment of funerals, phone cards, prescriptions, a teen support group and much, much more.
Please come support this incredible cause by donating a stocking or auction item to the event by Monday December 1st at Interior Solutions or attend on Wednesday December 3rd at Big D Construction. Donations are accepted through the Helping Kids with Cancer Facebook Page.
