The Founder of "Wings of Eagles", the Joseph Alvarez Organization for Seriously Ill Children is conducting a donation drive for stocking stuffers through Friday, December 15th.
Georgia Alvarez says the holidays can be especially hard on children with cancer and other illnesses, and their families. So "Wings of Eagles" hosts a Christmas party for them.
It features gifts, pizza, games and a visit from Blue Santa. But donations are still needed for stocking stuffers, things like candy canes, gloves, yo-yos and other small toys, pencils, crayons and such. There are 36 families will ill children being served by the non-profit organization right now. And their siblings and a few children who volunteer with "Wings of Eagles" will also receive gifts at the party. A total of 97 gifts are needed.
The party is on Sunday, December 17th so the deadline for donations is the 15th. They can be dropped off at Edward Jones Financial Services , 1264 the Esplanade, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
