Bumble Bags | Care Kits for Cancer Treatment

The mission of the Humble Bumble Project is to alleviate even the slightest amount of financial burden faced by pediatric and young adult cancer families so parents and caregivers can focus on family rather than finance. 

 

Bumble Bags are small kits that are filled with simple essentials for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments at infusion centers located within UPMC – Hillman Cancer Center (Wellsboro, PA), Guthrie Clinic (Wellsboro, PA), James P. Wilmot Cancer Center (Rochester, NY), and Geisinger Cancer Institute (Danville, PA).

 

Each Bumble Bag contains the following items (may change periodically): 

  • Hand sanitizer

  • Single-use hand sanitizer

  • Hand lotion

  • Travel tissues

  • Lip balm

  • Ginger chews

  • Playing cards

  • Sleep balm

  • Dunkin’ coffee coupons (Wellsboro locations only)

  • Hand-drawn cards from the students at Trinity Lutheran School

  • Hand molded clay bumblebees

  • Pen

We are able to fill these Bumble Bags with items that provide comfort and care to cancer patients by the generosity of our community.  To contribute simply click the AmazonSmile link below, select an item from our Charity List, purchase, and it is shipped directly to the Humble Bumble Project!
