Holiday Toys Program

We believe every child should experience the joy of the holiday season. Unfortunately, patients in treatment for blood cancers, as well as their families, often have little funds or time to spare for holiday celebrations due to the treatment expenses and time spent in hospital clinics.

To help brighten the holidays for CLF patients and families, Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan hosts the annual Holiday Toys Program. The Holiday Toys Program sends almost 2,000 presents to approximately 500 children each year.

In conjunction with the Holiday Toys Program, CLF hosts annual Holiday Toys Open Houses in December. With the help of dozens of volunteers, CLF provides a safe, loving environment specially designed for our patients and families to come together and celebrate. At the Open House events, the children can make holiday crafts, take pictures with Santa, enjoy surprises and get in the holiday spirit with families and friends.

We would like to thank the many gracious organizations and individuals, including the Kimberlee A. Fast Endowment Fund, Gonzalez Group, Inc.MacKellar Associates, Art Van Furniture, Unity Credit Union, and Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union who host toy drives or support the Holiday Toys Program in additional ways each year. CLF gladly accepts new, unused and unwrapped toys less than 10 years old for children of any age, from infants to teenagers.
