THANK YOU ALL FOR AN AMAZING DONATION YEAR

2016 year of giving is complete! We are now collecting donations and bears to handout to those children who have to spend their holiday season in the hospital for 2017. Please consider us as your charity of choice for the 2017 holiday season. From our family to yours, thank you.
