Cancer Kit Service Project
I love a great idea for a service project. I love a service activity that brings a community together for a great cause.
The Holidays make a great time for service projects…but anytime is a great time to get together with friends and loved ones and serve.
Our neighborhood women got together and made over 100 cancer kits for patients going through cancer treatments.
I’m so excited to share what we made for these sweet people at the Huntsman Cancer Center.
Our theme was “Cold Days & Warm Hearts” and it took some amazingly talented women to throw it all together. I played just a small part, but all of our efforts came together for an amazing cause.
We love how these cancer kits turned out!
We started with screen printing the logo for our project “Cold Days & Warm Hearts” on Colorful Canvas Tote Bags from Oriental Trading. They were perfect to hold all of the goodies for the patients.
What You’ll Need for a Cancer Kit Service Project:
A Warm Hat (crocheted ones are perfect for this)
Soft, warm fleece blanket
Rice Hot Pad
Books to Read
Pens and Pencils
We tied warm fleece blankets for our project. Each blanket was made with lost of love.
The soft fleece is so warm. It was so fun to see all of the cool fleece designs and colors together.
Some other comfort items that are perfect for a Cancer Kit, are bandanas, a warm hat, and a rice hot pad made from flannel.
Hard candy and gum is a great thing to add for patients to use during their treatment sessions, or when they don’t have much of an appetite:(
We also filled the kits with some books, activities, coloring pencils, pencils, pens and the sweetest…a journal.
In the front of the journals, women in my neighborhood wrote down encouraging messages to the patients that will receive the cancer kits. The messages were so uplifting and sweet.
We added all of these goodies to the bright canvas totes from Oriental Trading.
My neighbors delivered the cancer kits to the treatment center, and we can’t wait to spread love to those sweet patients.
If you are looking for a fun service project to do with neighbors, friends, or family, this is such a great idea…and will make a difference in the life of a cancer patient.
