EDISON, NJ - Recently, Bianca’s Kids North received information on a family in need. The elves at Bianca’s Kids North sprung into action to ensure this family received their wish in time for the holiday.

The wish request was for Jacob who is 9 and Jaylee who is 3 to unwrap Christmas presents on Christmas morning from Santa.

Danielle, Jacob and Jaylee’s mother, has been overwhelmed after losing her other son to cancer and was recently diagnosed with cancer herself and is about to enter into chemotherapy.

As the family struggles to provide the essential needs for the children, Bianca’s Kids North knew they could certainly help by granting this wish. Bianca’s Kids North elves pooled their resources to ensure these two precious children would have a Merry Christmas.

A carload of gifts were wrapped and family members picked up the gifts on December 13. Theresa Balka, Bianca’s Kids North Board member stated, “The pair of family relatives who picked up the presents from Bianca’s Kids North, will deliver the gifts to children’s mom Danielle”.

Danielle’s family members could not thank the elves at Bianca’s Kids North enough. Teary eyed family members who picked up the presents indicated, “The children’s family has very little, now they will presents under the tree.” The family was pleased that Danielle  will not have to worry about the children having presents from Santa.

Bianca’s Kids is a nonprofit organization that grants wished to needy children. To learn more about the organization and how you can help, visit or find them on FaceBook at Bianca’s Kids North or Bianca’s Kids.
