SCA Cheerleaders and Basketball players invite you to “purple out” the stands for the basketball games on Thursday, November 30 to raise awareness for cancer.

We will be collecting items for chemo care packets to help those undergoing Chemotherapy treatments. Items will be collected throughout the week leading up to the game (11/27-12/1).  Also, the charge of admission for the game will be a chemo care packet item.  Below are items that would be great to bring:
 

  • Chapstick to help with chapped lips which is a side effect       

 

  • Small hand sanitizers to help keep germs away when immune systems are low

 

  • Hard candies/Mints for the bad taste in the mouth from chemo    Christian books/Devotionals or Crossword puzzle books to help pass time during long treatments               

 

  • Tissues

 

  • Warm socks

 

  • Quarters for vending machines   

 

  • Cash that will be put toward restaurant gift cards

Boxes will be placed in each classroom for the collection of items.  Cheerleaders will come and collect items each afternoon.  There will also be a box at the admissions table of the basketball game for care packet items or monetary donations to be placed in.

Thank you for joining with us in ministering to those affected by cancer!
