Smiles & Fun with Santa

 December 19th, 2020

Due to the pandemic and State restriction, the Frances Foundation is unable to host the same huge awesome Holiday Party that we had at Vonage last year.

However, the FF will be undeterred in bringing holiday smiles, joy, happiness and comforting assistance to its pediatric cancer warriors and families during this holiday season.  


We will be presenting a special Santa Day. We will make it as special as possible for the children and their families.


Due to the new pandemic restrictions, the max. # in attendance at any 1 time is 25 people. So we will be staggering the arrival and departure times of all attending families at ½ hour intervals; We will do the same kind of staggering with regard to volunteers looking to help out.


If you would like to make a donation to this event, please send an email to Chairwoman Melissa Heugle at mjheugs@gmail.com.

Donations of the following would be great : (1) cookies & brownies & candy canes ; (2) toys &  games ( new & unwrapped) ; (3) holiday decorations.


If you would like to volunteer time to help out on Santa Day, please send an email to Chairwoman Melissa at mjheugs@gmail.com;

Volunteer set-up  8 am to 10 am; 1 hour max intervals from 10 am to 3 pm for service of hot chocolate & refreshments at 2 pavilion windows ( 2 volunteers per window) ; and clean-up and pack-up at 4 pm.

Keep in mind that with Santa & Santa’s character helpers, the guests, & volunteers, we must keep the total # there to a max of 25 at 1 time.  


In many ways, the FF will passionately continue its heartfelt commitment to our warriors and their families throughout the holiday season.
