Holiday Open House Logo

You are invited to Caitlin’s Smiles’ annual Holiday Open House on Thursday, December 7, from 5 to 8 pm, to celebrate the holidays and a successful year. The Holiday Open House will be held at the Caitlin’s Smiles office at 3303 N. 6th Street in Harrisburg.

Founder and Director Cheryl Hornung states, “We wish to thank our volunteers, sponsors, and donors for a year of generous giving. Our office will be filled with holiday cheer, complete with refreshments, music, silent auctions, volunteering, and tours.” A silent auction will run until 6:45 pm. All community members are welcome to attend the event.

Our warehouse will be transformed into a huge volunteering space for families, groups, and individuals to create greeting cards, decorate gift bags, and make craft kits for hospitalized children. To register, go to the Caitlin’s Smiles’ Monthly Craft Night page.

Donations of craft supplies are gratefully accepted: magic markers, crayons, coloring or puzzle books, adult coloring books, sketch pads for teens, macramé hemp, plastic lacing/gimp, embroidery floss, pencils, ink pens, pony beads, Play-Doh®, Ziploc® baggies in snack and sandwich sizes, and gift cards from area craft and office supply stores.

Caitlin’s Smiles delivers arts & crafts kits to children facing chronic or life-threatening illnesses, and donations will be used to fill “Bags of Smiles” craft packages. Since 2004, Caitlin’s Smiles has brought smiles to the faces of more than 1.25 million children.
