Whether you are new to Holiday Heroes or a past sponsor, our families NEED YOU.  We are looking for individuals, families, companies and, organizations.  Many parents hear the words “your child has cancer” and begin the stressful journey of supporting their families with additional medical expenses. Many families have also found themselves out of work or have lost a significant other due to Covid-19. Imagine struggling to pay rent or groceries and having the extra stress of bringing the joy of the holidays home without any financial resources.



What is Holiday Heroes?


Holiday Heroes is a program designed to bring joy to families with a child battling cancer. Each year our Holiday Heroes shop for their adopted family(s), wrap the gifts and give them to their adopted family in December at the Holiday Heroes Party.  The day is a special fun-filled visit with Santa, games, art projects, snacks, and presents. As a Holiday Hero, you and your family or colleagues are invited to celebrate with our families.


Last year, our Holiday Heroes helped celebrate the holiday season by sponsoring 120 families. One hundred twenty families may have gone without gifts, without support, without a holiday. Our patients and their families were so grateful!


How can you be a sponsor this year?


1. Let Heroes for Children know how many families you would like to adopt by completing the attached form.

2. Family Wish Lists will be emailed to you by the beginning of November.

3. Bring the wish list with you to SHOP for gifts.

4. Sponsors should wrap all gifts and deliver them to the Holiday Heroes party in December. If you cannot attend, you may drop off the gifts at the Heroes for Children office at the designated time and date (TBD.)

5. Deadline for applications is Friday, October 31st, 2021




We encourage sponsors NOT to spend more than $50 per person.

(We strongly recommend adhering to the recommended budget so that all families receive gifts of the same value.)
