Every day, we receive requests for help from families in need. Although Patches of Light cannot solve the problems every family faces when a child is ill, with your help, we can continue to make a profound difference in their lives and in our communities.  Patches of Light receives no federal or state funding of any kind. Our Board of Directors help as volunteers and over 90% of all money donated goes to help our sponsored families, so it all boils down to YOU!  Help us reach even MORE families in need by joining us today.


Whether you give your time or your financial resources or help by providing treatment journals or HUG bags—either as a corporation or as an individual—your involvement will have a significant impact. Nothing is too small!  No matter what kind of contribution you make, it could well be one of the most rewarding things you ever do! 

You can also give through Kroger Community Rewards and Amazon Smiles. Click on the additional tab for details on how to sign up.


“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done.
We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.”
― Mother Teresa
