I love this time of year and spending time with my friends and family. But I realize that the holiday season isn’t always easy for everybody, especially if you’re a family with a child in a medical crisis. This is why I love helping out and getting involved with There with Care throughout the year and during the holidays. I attended and helped at a fundraiser for them just over a month ago! Maybe you want to get involved this season too.
Who is There With Care?
There with Care is a charity foundation that is committed to helping families with critically ill children. As they say on their website:
“Our mission is to provide a wide range of thoughtful and fundamental services to families and children during the critical phase of a medical crisis. We serve families referred by medical agencies, by building a network of services and people who ease the burden of life’s day-to-day obligations with compassion and care.”
They have a variety of programs ranging from help with transportation, meals and home maintenance to providing sibling support. They also have Family Inspired programs that were set up by specific children or in honor of them. You can check out the full scope of the programs they have going on throughout the year here. But they also have special programs during the holidays!
The holiday season can be a stressful time for anyone, but especially for families with critically ill children. So There With Care offers the gift of time by helping parents and siblings with preparing meals and buying gifts. This way the families can focus on the medical care the child needs without being overwhelmed. And with our help they can still enjoy a wonderful holiday season and continue making beautiful family memories. Help and support from the community like this is so essential in making sure these families feel like they are not alone.
Want to get involved?
There is a Holiday Meal and Gift Sponsorship Program! With this program you are matched with a family so you can provide gifts and a pre-cooked holiday meal from a local supermarket. There With Care will communicate with the sponsor and the family to give gift ideas and the size of the family for the meal. If you’d like to participate you can get more information on the website here and fill out an application.
You can also help by volunteering to deliver the meals and gifts to the families when a sponsor isn’t available for the delivery. There With Care also welcomes gift cards as donations for the family to use for groceries, gas and other essential items. You can also make a donation and get holiday card inserts with unique artwork to let people know that you have made a donation in their name! For more information on all of these holiday programs check out their website.
