From Maddi’s Closet is gathering school supplies for 200 children who are battling cancer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Hospital Orange County. We are reaching out to the members of the Whittier Chamber of Commerce to help us reach our goal!
School Daze Craze. . . Some patients are undergoing treatment and are not able to attend school. Unfortunately, many simply do not have the resources to choose the school supplies they need or would like to have.
The School Daze Craze inpatient event is one of the children’s most anticipated and enjoyed. It takes a “whole lot of people” to make this happen, but it is worth it! On the day of the visit the children are given pink Maddi dollars and they “shop” for the items they want to fill their favorite backpack. Everyone has a great time – there are lots of smiles!
Chamber member Ross Gile, DigiCal, has offered to partner with From Maddi’s Closet, making his office at 12411 Slauson Avenue, Ste. A, in Whittier a dropoff location THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2015. Call Ross at (562) 696-2222 for more info.
In addition, Ross is donating an “Amazon Kindle Fire HD” for a giveaway!! Whoever brings school supplies to DigiCal will be placed a drawing to win this Kindle. We are collecting supplies to the end of September.
The details for the drawing to be announced. You don’t want to miss this!
