How to help

There are many ways in which you can help Patches of Light, and the families we assist. First and foremost our goal is to help families remain with their sick child during treatments, hospitalizations, and recovery. This is accomplished primarily by paying past due bills, buying groceries, gas cards, etc. Fundraising, donations of gift cards, and financial donations all help us to accomplish that goal.

If you are interested in donating monetarily please click on the DONATE button below or on any of our pages. Your donation is tax deductible and greatly appreciated and needed.




We are currently looking to add an additional volunteer to our working board. If you have marketing, fund raising or accounting experience and love children and want to make a difference in the lives of the families we support, we would love to speak to you. This is an unpaid position. Please contact us at number or email below.

Combined Charitable Campaign

     Many of you are beginning to choose a charity for your Combined Charitable Campaign through your employer. In the past we have been allowed to visit your job location and share information on the who, what, when, and where of how we raise funds, awareness, and support for families with medically fragile children.

     This year, as are most things, we are virtual. In actuality I like this because it is like I am walking into your job, sitting down with you and explaining what we do and how vital, especially in these times, our work and support are.

     Here is to a new age of fundraising and, well, everything! Thank you to all who have been supporting us and to anyone who might like to join our efforts through their Combined Charitable Campaign. Please share, ask questions, and check out our website, FB page and more. Thank you.
