Holiday Party at Children's Cancer Connection

posted on Monday, December 17, 2018

Over 100 children participated in the annual “Holiday Drop Off + Children’s Party” at the Hansen Home for Hope this weekend. The unique event allows parents of families of cancer survivors—or those who are undergoing cancer treatment—an evening to shop for presents, enjoy a quiet dinner or run errands while their children enjoy pizza, crafts and cookie decorating.

Iowa Select Farms employees teamed up with Children's Cancer Connection staff and volunteers to organize the crafts and activities throughout the two-hour event. The Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation also provided a present for every child who attended, and the crafts completed by the children earlier in the evening were wrapped and presented to the parents during pick-up.
