Who We Help: Chix 4 a Cause
The HomeTown Foundation partners with Chix 4 a Cause in 2022.
Because we believe that music heals and brings people together, we are very proud to partner with Washington County’s own Chix 4 a Cause. Volunteers from Chix 4 a Cause will serve up cold beverages at the HomeGrown Music Festival, Regner Rocks and Sounds at Sandy Knoll. Proceeds from soda, water and beer sales will benefit the organization.
They’ve touched the lives of 230 cancer fighters since inception in 2004, Chix 4 a Cause has provided $235,000 in financial assistance for non-medical needs during cancer treatment.
About Chix 4 a Cause
Chix 4 a Cause is all about spreading love and joy when people need it most. They strive to show people that Cancer Has Its eXtras! That’s why the Gifts of Love program was born.
Gifts of Love are designed to provide financial and emotional support to individuals battling cancer. Each gift is unique to a person’s needs. It may include help with housing expenses, groceries bills, transportation costs, or certificates for a dinner out or a weekend away with the grandkids. Each and every gift is customized to the recipient. But all Gifts of Love share one common goal — to help ease the burden of a cancer diagnosis, if even for a moment.
Gifts of Love can be requested by health care professionals or social workers, but are most often suggested by loving friends, family or neighbors hoping to do a little extra for their loved one fighting cancer.
They also provide Gift of Love boxes. Designed to provide emotional support, boxes are filled with calming activities and resources to show a loved one how much you care.
