DIY Service: Stay-cation Boxes for Cancer Patients

Even while we are at home during the COVID-19 crisis, we can serve in solidarity. Each week we will be sharing a virtual service project to help spread positivity and hope to those in need.

Help bring ‘stay-cation’ boxes into the homes of cancer patients and their families. Here’s how you can help:

buildOn has joined in solidarity with For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation to help provide patients with ‘Take a Break Boxes,’ a kit with resources for respite and reflection that allows families to create priceless, memorable and magical moments together in their homes.

1. Create an inspirational illustration, or…

2. Help FPS gather items for patients’ Stay-cation Take a Break Box. Here is a list of items you can donate: crayons; colored pencils; coloring books for children, teens and adults; board games for a variety of ages

Illustrations and items can be mailed to: For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation Program – Take a Break Boxes, 620 W. Germantown Pike, Suite 250, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462. Or email
