January 8th - February 26th
Donation drive hosted by DC Ranch
Every day in the U.S. an average of 43 children are diagnosed with cancer and some of those children will fall between the ages of 10-18. DC Ranch is collecting items to support these tweens & teens fighting cancer. This tween & teen toy drive is to collect items that these adolescents would love to have while receiving treatment at a hospital. Given that these children have compromised immune systems, we request that all donations made be new, not used.
Top Donation ideas for a teen/tween:
1. Gift Card (Starbucks, iTunes, Amazon, Target)
2. Re-usable water bottle / hydro flask
3. Back packs/ Purses
5. Portable Speaker
Locations of the donation boxes are:
The Homestead Community Center
Desert Camp Community Center
Ranch Offices on Market Street
Coin Drive & Complimentary brunch; children, teens, & parents welcome!
