We needed to decide who would be receiving donations from our Annual Benefit Hunt. With only three charities mentioned, it was decided to donate $1,000 among Candlelighters of Brevard, Nana's House and SOS Cookies.
Candlelighters of Brevard, Inc.
is a non-profit organization dedicated to children with cancer and their
families by offering emotional support and financial assistance. Candlelighters
of Brevard, Inc are committed to ensuring no one has to face the diagnosis of
childhood cancer alone.
Nana’s House (http://nanaschildrenshome.com) is a group
neglected, abused, needy, or abandoned children ages 0 – 18. These children
will be provided for in every manner. Their mission is to provide a safe,
secure, loving home where these children can come and experience God’s love
SOS Cookies sends troops ‘taste of home’ from Roseland and Sebastian. SOS Cookies remembers American troops by sending care packages of homemade cookies to as many soldiers overseas as possible.
