Family Support Services
Tee Up For Tots is not just a fundraising group. We are very proud to have a dedicated corps of volunteers who are working directly with pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Tee Up For Tots, Inc. has also established an emergency fund for families who are experiencing extreme financial hardship as a result of their child's cancer treatments. Tee Up For Tots will give IMMEDIATE grants for family travel expenses, groceries and other emergency needs.
In addition, Tee Up For Tots delivers over 80"kits" each year to pediatric cancer families. Kits include items such as: phone cards, prepaid gas cards, cafeteria cards, video rentals, a journal, restaurant vouchers, entertainment coupons, disposable cameras and t-shirts.

Family Assistance "Kit" Sponsor - $75
The kit includes a prepaid phone card (so patients can keep in touch with family and friends), UMC cafeteria pass (so much time is spent in the hospital, that eating in the cafeteria is a must!), a journal and pen (to keep track of blood counts, questions for the doctors, important phone numbers and appointments). We also include various other items such as a Tee Up For Tots T-shirt, travel mug, disposable camera and restaurant coupons. These items are our greatest expense, and we distribute over 80 kits per year. Any donations designated to Family Assistance for these kits would be greatly appreciated!
