The Gift That Gives All Year – LoveBoxes

Project: LoveBox. A great opportunity for clubs, groups, churches, companies and individuals to make a difference by giving a smile to someone in despair.

Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean have to stop giving! Through Steven’s Hope Love Box program, you can give sick or seriously injured children and their families the knowledge that they aren’t alone in their struggles. It’s not hard, and with just a little time you can help make a family’s stay in a hospital just a little easier.

It’s a simple process with a big result.

Children dealing with cancer, transplant or other life threatening illnesses spend a lot of time in the hospital.  It can get overwhelming – the needles, the nausea, the boredom.  This is true not only for the sick child, but the parents at bedside, too.  So what can you do?

LoveBoxes are a great way to show the kids and parents spending long periods of time in the hospital that someone is thinking of them.  These “gifts of love” are full of games, crayons, puzzles, get well notes, and more.  

When the social workers or the nurses see the child and/or the parents starting to slip into despair, they get a LoveBox.  It’s unexpected. It’s a distraction.  It’s a smile.  It’s hope.

If you or your group would like to help fill LoveBoxes, please call Steven’s Hope at 909-373-0678.  For more information, click here.

Brighten the Holidays With Winter Wonderland 2019

 

Can you feel it?  It’s coming soon!  That’s right the Winter Wonderland Project is HERE!!

Each year, supporters of Steven’s Hope gather together to support families with ill children to make the holidays a joyous time.  Parents of these children are facing so much stress: emotional, physical and financial.  For many, finances are so stretched that there may not be any presents to share on that special day.  

This is a perfect time for you, your family, your neighbors, your office, your civic group or club to make a real difference in the lives of a sick child, their siblings and their parents.

It’s easy.  

You can adopt a family and possibly fill their Christmas gift wishes.

You can host a toy drive for new, unwrapped toys for children 0 to 18 years of age.

You can sponsor the Winter Wonderland project with a financial contribution.

Above all, you can be an advocate for the benefits Steven’s Hope provides families.
