CLARK, NJ - Giving the gift of comfort and support to children undergoing cancer treatment starts with a visit to Duck Donuts during the month of September. Duck Donuts has teamed up with Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program this month to provide “huggable hope to children undergoing cancer treatment in our local community,” according to organizers.
Duck Donuts owners Ron Bevan and Kristin Maloney are excited to be a part of the charitable drive this month. Customers that donate a dollar to the cause at Clark’s Duck Donuts will receive a coupon for their next visit to buy one donut and get one free.
According to their website Gabe’s Chemo Duck “supports children and families living with cancer. Created by a mother for her son Gabe when he was diagnosed with cancer at a young age, Chemo Duck is a soft, cuddly companion that provides huggable hope and alleviates fear and anxiety.“ The program was created in conjunction with medical professionals and life specialists to help families in their new life and inspires healing through play therapy.
