The Caden Project Nemours Hospital Orlando
Reedy Creek will once again be participating in The Caden Project this July. Below is an email that was sent by Leamsi Bauge with all the information you need to either donate or take part in this event. Please consider helping in some way, we have helped with this project for the last few years, and it is a great way to get out and give back to the local community.
I hope everyone had a safe and fun filled 4th of July weekend. I wanted to pass along some information on a wonderful cause the department has been working on along with The Caden Project. For those of you that have never heard of The Caden Project it is a non-profit organization that was founded by 2 parents whose sons both suffered from genetic immune disorder. As one of there boys (Caden) went through a bone marrow transplant someone brought him a small bear to help comfort him and they saw how much joy and ease it brought to there little boy and decided to pass that on to other children by starting "THE CADEN PROJECT".
Fast forward to now and on July 25th RCFD will be joining them to distribute bears at Florida Hospital Orlando Childrens Hospital and Nemours Children Hospital. The bears that we will be distributing that day do need to be purchased by us, So I've been reaching out to each department for those that would like to help in this cause. Each bear is $15 and we have a goal of at least 30 bears. Also for those interested we are in need of volunteers to go with us that day which is a Monday. We'll be at FH Orlando at 10:30 am and Nemours at 1:30pm.
I'm on shift at the Communication Center Sunday thru Wednesday where you may drop off any donations. But I can also come and pick up for those unable to make it to the Sta.3 area. All donations must be collected by July 22nd. Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
Thank you all for everything you do!
