FCF Bingo is here! Grab a sheet and start playing. If you have any questions or need clarification don’t hesitate to ask and make sure you read the rules on the back of the sheet!
We’re also in our 3rd year of support of the Swedish Cancer Institute Adopt-a-Family:
The holidays are here and what better way to celebrate than giving to others in the local community who could use some extra cheer!? Many patients who receive care at Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI) find themselves overwhelmed as they try to manage treatment, work, and family obligations during the holiday season. To make this time of year a bit brighter, SCI has an annual tradition of supporting patients and families to provide food items, toiletries, and small gifts/comfort items. The donors remain anonymous and are given a “wish list” from the families. Most of these patients are in the middle of treatment and often don’t have the time or energy to even buy groceries for a holiday meal. One meal for these families means one less thing to worry about. For those interested in participating in this cause, donating one item from their personalized wish lists will go a long way towards making a difference in their lives.
Beginning this week we will have marked boxes and plastic bins out in the gym. There will be a sign up sheet with the families’ wish lists! Please sign up by writing your name and last initial in the box next to the item you are willing to donate and bring in your item(s) by Sunday December 16th. You may sign up for more than one item if you wish.
Thank you for helping us give to those in need!
