CHILDREN’S CANCER RECOVERY FOUNDATION BRINGS EVEN MORE SMILES WITH ITS Q2 BEAR-ABLE GIFTS SHIPMENT

The continued generosity of individuals and corporations across the United States has allowed the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation‘s (CCRF) Bear-Able Gift Program, to put thousands of more smiles on the faces of children living with cancer. Those smiles help to make the life of a child with cancer more bearable and hopeful.

Recently, the Bear-Able Gift Program delivered 12,736 toys and gifts to 56 hospitals across the country to help brighten the lives of 3,440 children living with cancer. Year-to-date, CCRF has delivered 21,436 toys and gifts, touching the lives of 5,890 boys and girls with cancer.

The Bear-Able Gift Program distributes items such as games, toys, crayons, coloring books, video games, puzzles, books and teddy bears — all kinds of things that make children smile — to hospitals and oncology centers across the country. The program makes CCRF the largest supplier of gifts to children in North America who have cancer. It relies solely on donations of new and unwrapped toys.

“The continued generosity of individuals and corporations throughout the country is helping put smiles on the faces of boys and girls bravely battling cancer,” said Greg Anderson, founder of Harrisburg, PA-based CCRF. “That support has enabled us to continue to increase the number of children we touch through our Bear-Able gifts program, and for that, we are deeply appreciative.”

There are a number of ways in which individuals and businesses can help support CCRF’s Bear-Able Gift Program; they include sponsoring a toy drive, or raising or donating funds.
