Each Holiday Season the Luke Neuhedel Foundation aids children with cancer and their families. These children are recommended by their social worker because the financial strains of the child's illness have made it difficult for their parents to provide holiday gifts and/or meals for the family.
Here's how the program works ---
The names of the children and their wishes are listed below.
If you would like to fulfill a wish, send an email to
stating "I will donate (nameof gift) for (name of child) in family number
(put number here)".
If you cannot send an email, you can call LNF at 516-882-9183 and provide the same information. You can adopt one child or the entire family. If you intend to adopt the child's family, or have a group willing to do so, please provide that information.
Please wait for a confirmation email before purchasing gifts for that child.
Once you purchase the present, please wrap it and include the child's name and family number on the tag (for example, Jane #4). Mail the package to the address listed with the child's information.
Please mail packages by December 17th.
(It is best to send packages with insurance and return/receipt requested so you know it was received.)
Once a child has been adopted their list is placed at the very bottom of this page for reference. Available children are placed at the top of the page.
Please remember that the needs of these families and hundreds more continue throughout the year, as they fight for the life of their child.
LNF is also requesting donations for these and other families to make their holiday better. No amount is too little!
Thank you and God Bless you this Holiday Season!
