During September, help us increase breast cancer awareness and support families facing breast cancer through our collection for Sharsheret’s Busy Box Program.
Sharsheret, is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer. Raleigh-Cary JFS is a local partner of Sharsheret. For more information, go to www.Sharsheret.org
Sharsheret’s Busy Box provides resources to help parents guide young children through their mother’s cancer journey and address the needs of their children during the diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. The Busy Box, which is free of charge and mailed directly to the family’s home, includes age and gender appropriate games and activities to occupy children during doctor appointments or while mom is resting after treatment.
Sharsheret cannot accept donations of used toys, all donations must be new and unopened. We are seeking toys, books and/or art supplies for babies and children ages 0-12. The photographs above show examples of toys that are commonly included in Busy Boxes.
