Here at CRH we are currently getting ready to celebrate
Halloween, but we need your help! We’re seeking Fairy Godparents
to bestow a spirited season of make-believe and magic upon our
youth! Sponsoring a dorm with a gift of $250 will ensure that
every child’s costume wish comes true, provides materials for our
highly-competitive dorm-decorating contest and purchases tickets
for a group outing to a local haunted house. To become a fairy
godparent this #Halloween for one of the dorms above message
us on our social media pages or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Gift cards are a great way to help CRH meet the needs of the kids
we serve. Not only do they enable us to take the kids on outings
or for special meals; they allow us to procure specific
therapeutic materials, birthday gift requests or supplies for a
school project “on demand”.
Some favorites are Target, Walmart, Amazon, Five Below, 99 Cent
Store, Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, GameStop, Chipotle, Popeyes,
Pizza Hut or Crumbl cookies.
