Stuff the Sleigh provides help and love to young cancer patients and their families

Dozens of children with cancer and their families are getting a little help with school supplies today.

The non-profit Stuff the Sleigh is holding its annual Christmas in July event to ease the financial burden of back-to-school costs for children referred by Texas Children's Hospital.

Both cancer patients and their siblings receive items from their back-to-school wish lists, including school supplies, backpacks, clothes and more.

Stuff the Sleigh is dedicated to helping young cancer & hematology patients and their families through year-round giving. In addition to Christmas in July, the non-profit also hosts Holiday Angels, an annual holiday give-back event to provide young cancer patients and their families with gifts. Stuff the Sleigh has also created a Dare to Dream program to provide once-in-a-lifetime family experiences for chronically ill patients.

Stuff the Sleigh collects monetary donations and gift cards for its programming throughout the year. For more information, or to donate, click here.
