2020 Nicholas Giving Tree Project
We are hosting our 7th Nicholas Holiday Giving Tree Project. If you are interested in this kind of giving directly toward a Batten Family here are items that will be needed for the packages. These children all have a fatal neurodegenerative brain disease and some of the families have more than one child with this disease. We are sending small "shoe box size" care packages to the families. The boxes are priority mailboxes which will be shipped at a flat rate and they are the size of a shoe box. Sizes of the items are small so many items can fit into the boxes. These items requested are items the families use to take care of their sick child daily or bring to the hospital, gift cards- so they can purchase items they need (such as over the counter medications or toiletries), also gift cards to purchase a cup of coffee! The packages will be mailed out December 1 for the holiday.
This year we will be sending out 50 care packages! We need your help.
- New Items asked for this year- I am asking for Twin, Double, queen and king sheet sets for the kids this year, more travel size items and gift cards. Any donations would be appreciated. Thank you!
- Care Package Donation $50.00: If you prefer to make a money donation toward the care packages. We will fill the box for a child for you- please donate directly to our web site: www.OurPromiseToNicholas.com. Specify it is for the Nicholas Giving Tree. The care package will contain- Bed sheets, all travel items, children Tylenol, holiday candy, face mask, ornament, special card, and gift card. Visit www.OurPromiseToNicholas.com to make a donation.

- Deadline for Drop off is November 23rd. I will be putting the packages together over the week- to be mailed on December 1. Please drop off items early: For my address- email me or private message me on facebook and I will send you my address.
