Description:

We will be preparing items for our Chemo Kits and assembling them. Chemo Kits are care packages Chemo Crew distributes to newly diagnosed cancer patients in our community. They offer comfort and encouragement to those going through a tough time. There is a variety of opportunities to help us prepare the items for the kits including: Sewing Rice Wraps Binding Booklets Writing/Drawing encouraging cards (this is great for children) Counting Candies and re-labeling them Assembling Cups Assembling Literature packets Once the items are prepared, we will then form an assembly line and put together about 500 Chemo Kits. There area also items we use in our kits that we need more of including: Travel Size Hand Lotions-- these are important because a common side effect of chemotherapy and radiation is dry and cracking skin. A good lotion can really help. Hard Candies (not bought in bulk sections; it must include an expiration date).
