Angels at Work charity will host its first event for 2013

“Stuffed for Smiles” is an event to raise money to purchase stuffed animals and children’s books to be given out to sick children by local healthcare facilities. These items will be purchased through the Kohl’s for Kids program, in which 100 percent of net profit funds goes directly to help support kids health and education. Other proceeds will be given to a local child who has been diagnosed with cancer, to help with medical expenses or other needs.

Donations of any amount will be accepted. Donations of $10 will purchase a stuffed animal and $15 will purchase an animal and book. Your $15 donation may be made in honor or memory of a loved one, to which their initials or name will be placed on the inside cover of the book.  

“This program has been designed to try and bring a smile to a sick child,” states Kyla Martin, president of Angels at Work Charity. “The expenses that add up for a family who has a child with cancer can be very high, and we are hoping to help, at least, one family with those expenses,” added Martin.

“We live in a great community in which people have always come together to support Angels events. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their continued support,” states Martin.

Checks can be made out to “Angels at Work,” and mailed in c/o Kyla Martin, 225 S. Lily Road, Paxinos, PA 17860.

Additional information is available by calling Kyla or Kathy at 644-7689.
