We want to make this holiday season special for local children receiving treatment in the hospital by providing them with toys and other donations. With the help of the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, our agency will help make this holiday season special for these wonderful children.
John Theissen Children’s Foundation believes that sometimes, a smile is the best medicine. The Founder, John Theissen, created the non-profit after befriending a 7-year-old at the hospital he was receiving treatment at for a brain tumor. John realized that the child did not have much family support throughout her treatment process. During the hospital’s holiday party, the young 7-year-old was asked what she wanted for Christmas and she had decided to ask for a teddy bear in which she gifted to John later that day. Her amazing spirit and heart for giving inspired John to create the John Theissen Children’s Foundation. “There are many children that unfortunately do not have the support that they need while receiving treatment for a serious illness but we want to help these children have joy during this holiday season.”

Since it began, the Foundation has collected over a million toys and continues to help the sick and underprivileged children. Our agency will also be collecting donations toys and gift cards to help purchase toys for the children. Feel free to drop them off at our office location. Funds raised will help families in need of financial assistance. Let’s assist the John Theissen Children’s Foundation in their efforts to help put a smile on the face of a child in need.
