These children and families need your help and support.

Who We Help

Ten to twenty million children and adolescents in the United States have some form of chronic illness or disability. Chronic refers to a health condition that lasts anywhere from three months to a lifetime. We do our little (and huge) part by helping local families right here in Carroll County. They are families with low income that also have to brave the cost and time for special medical care for their child. We are here to help them live, give them hope, and to most of all laugh out loud. Through Christmas dinners and fulfilling wish lists, school supply distribution paired with a cook-out and water fun, we make every child smile and just be a normal kid.
