Families whose diagnosed child or bereaved siblings aged 12 or under can enjoy a fall festival with games, prizes, dinner, and trick-or-treating in a safe environment.
To help offset the cost of this tradition, families whose diagnosed child is undergoing treatment are invited to participate in the Thanksgiving meal program. Meals are unprepared, and the families are asked to pick them up at the Candlelighters office.
Candlelighters would like to invite your family to participate in our annual Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program!
Every year Candlelighters matches our families with generous “adopters” in the community to help provide our families with some holiday cheer. Understanding the increased financial stress, busy schedules, and the overall additional strain that many of our families may feel during the holiday season we hope to alleviate some of these stresses.
Please click on the button below which will take you to the Adopt-a-Family Application. Please be sure to read the first page before completing. Remember to include as many details as possible. Our “adopters” want to purchase items that your child(ren) will love and can only do so when details like type, color, brand, and style etc. are provided. The more ideas provided the easier it will be for our “adopters” to shop!
Lastly, please note the following items:
* If your family is being helped by another organization for the holidays, please let us know. This will allow us to invite another family to participate in our holiday program.
* Submitting the application does not guarantee your family will be adopted for the holidays. Though we try our very best to match all families with donors sometimes this is not possible. We will contact you late November if your family has been matched with an “adopter”.
Families whose diagnosed child or bereaved siblings aged 12 or under are invited to celebrate the holidays with Candlelighters.
This newly launched program in 2020 has already become a favorite among Candlelighters kids. This program serves about 40 - 50 local children facing cancer each month. Children receive a birthday card with well wishes and a certificate to pick out a toy or gift card from our Birthday Corner.
This program is made possible by:
No More Chemo Parties
Celebrate with the Cure 4 the Kids, and honor the children who have completed treatment.
