sANTA HAS GIVEN THE SMYS ADMINS A VERY IMPORTANT TASK.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐅𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦:
Every year, Show Me Your Stethoscope adopts children of our members who are in difficult situations and may not be able to provide presents for their children on Christmas morning. In previous years we have selected families from a variety of situations, from a nurse leaving a domestic violence situation, to a member who has taken in her grandchildren, people who have lost their job, or families fighting cancer or other medical issues. This year’s event has been named “Operation: Christmas Joy” as voted on by our members.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:
Apply to be a family:
If you are having a hard time financially and need help this holiday season, you can fill out an application here. Applications will be accepted through November 15th, 2021. Some restrictions apply; please read the application carefully. If you feel that you have an extenuating circumstance that should be considered, please message our public page or send us an email.
Amazon wish lists are made for each family based on the information provided on the application. Presents can be purchased off those lists and they will be sent directly to the family. All items are $40 or less. Lists can be found in the Featured Posts section (formerly known as “Announcements) in the Facebook group. Lists will also be posted in the SMYS Lounge on Nurses Lounge.
This year, we’re offering something new. We now have a donation link specifically for the Christmas Family program. Funds donated through this link will go towards helping with clothing, grocery store gift cards, and other necessities for the selected families. Any amount is greatly appreciated and all donations are tax deductible!
Be a Sponsor:
One of the most important and challenging items to provide for this program are clothing and winter coats. Therefore, we are asking for sponsors who are willing to make larger donations so the admin team can use those funds and directly purchase these things for the families. If you wish to be a sponsor, please complete this application. Not only will you get the warm, fuzzy feeling of being Santa, but also the warm fuzzy feeling of your donation being tax deductible. If you own a business, advertising options are available.
