The Children We Help, profiles and thank you notes.
The Holiday Effort is Caring for Children's main fundraising activity. Caring for Children has been running the Holiday Effort for 24 years now, and we have been able to help children and families dealing with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses with clothing and the basics of living during the all-important holiday season. And, thanks to the dedication and generosity of our sponsors/donors, we have been able to raise enough money during the Holiday Effort drive to also assist these families as much as we can throughout the year as well.

Enrichment Programs are designed to provide essential help to these children and their families. The year round programs seek to promote a healthy balance of living and learning experiences through enrichment activities (i.e., after school programs, summer camps, tutoring, developmental programming, etc.). For instance, Caring for Children has sponsored children to take part in Outward Bound, supported tutoring, dance, and music lessons. Caring for Children has also helped children rebuild their lives after unexpected tragedies like fire, theft, and organ transplants.[more...]
