We look toward the community, especially during the holiday season, to help us provide critical support to families that have a child with cancer.
Ventura, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2016
The NALA, a boutique marketing agency, is proud to announce that it has recently partnered with the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation (TBCF), a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization providing financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer living in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties. To assist TBCF, the NALA recently hosted a Thanksgiving food drive that resulted in four boxes of donated food.
“We look toward the community, especially during the holiday season, to help us provide critical support to families that have a child with cancer,” said Lindsey Leonard, TBCF Executive Director. “Both cash donations and food donations greatly assist our efforts to provide programs to a projected 165 families this year.”
Currently, Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation is seeking donations of toys valued at $25 for children with cancer and their siblings, as well as $25 Visa gift cards for TBCF teens. Gifts will be given out by Santa and Mrs. Claus to children attending their annual holiday party. Donated items can be dropped off at the NALA’s headquarters, 1891 Goodyear Ave., Suite 620, Ventura, CA, until Thursday, December 8th.
TBCF helps defray costs that are often overlooked. These include monthly bills (rent/mortgage, utilities, etc.), automobile and related transportation costs, and other similar expenses, as a parent usually has to take time off work or quit their job to spend quality time caring for their child in the hospital during their treatment.
