Chemo Care Packages

Image result for chemotherapy care packages

Hello everyone,
I'm a senior at Incline High School. I'm a member of the National Honor Society and for my community service project I hope to create "Chemo Care Kits" for cancer patients who are undergoing chemo therapy. Many people that deal with having to battle cancer know the pain and struggles of going through their treatment. These kits would have simple products that make the process a little more enjoyable.

I am reaching out to our generous community because I am hosting a drive for the items that will go in the kits (listed below). The Hospital I am working with is St. Mary's and I already have 5 orders for pediatric kits. My goal is about 35 kits. If anyone feels inclined to donate to a generous cause, there is a box in the Incline H.S. main office for the donated items. (The items need to be new to prevent infection)

-Fuzzy Socks, Hat, Gloves, and Scarves (if homemade, tag as -such)
-Small blankets
-Notebooks and pens
-Mugs
-Stuffed animals
-Word and Picture Puzzles, coloring books
-Books
-Tissues
-Card games/Hand-held games

I am also fundraising money for items that the hospital says should not be donated and that I will have to buy such as:
-Jergens Hand/body lotion
-Yogi Stress Relief Herbal Tea
-Aquafina Bottled Water
-Trial mix/ small healthy snacks
-Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
-Jolly Rancher Hard Candy
-Purell/ Germ-X Hand Sanitizer
-Orbit Gum/ Life Savors mints
-Biotine Dry Mouth Mouthwash

Thank you so much and if you could help spread the word I would be grateful!!!
The mailing address donations can be sent to is PO Box 4073, Incline Village, NV, 89450.
Thanks,
Athena Collier
