For the fourth year in a row, Max's Meals & More partnered with another charity, The 43 to Warm the Night with Light in Anderson Township and Newtown, Ohio in honor of sick and grieving children on Sunday, December 17th. We sold approximately 700 luminary kits that lined streets and driveways and transformed neighborhoods into holiday winter wonderlands! Thanks to all those that participated in this beautiful event!
Max's Meals was thrilled to take part again this year in the 11th annual Cancer Survivor's Day, sponsored by the Cincinnati Children's - Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute on Saturday, September 9th at the Cincinnati Zoo. We shared 200 bags of cotton candy with lots of giggling, happy survivors and their families! It was a great day!
Max's Meals was selected by the Hyde Park Busken (at the corner of Madison & Edwards Roads) to be a recipient of their Pies for a Purpose program! As a result, we distributed over 100 pumpkin pies to the families of the Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children's for Thanksgiving!
Thanks to all those that joined us for a night of family fun for all ages at our 6th annual Kick Up Your Heels for Max's Meals fundraiser held on Friday, March 24th at the Anderson Center.
It was a great night and a huge success with entertainment for all ages including a March Madness lounge playing the NCAA tourney basketball games, a karaoke party, a video game truck, face painters, balloon drops and much more! Our silent auction, raffle and candy bar were also a hit! Hope to see you there next year!
In honor of Max's 14th birthday on December 26th, 2015, Max's Meals was thrilled to contribute a check for $14,000 toward Dr. Stella Davies bone marrow failure research at Cincinnati Children's Hospital!
Max's Meals launched a new offering for the patients and caregivers of the Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children's Hospital early in 2016. Helping Hands Bags are filled with items that "experienced caregivers" found helpful when first leaving the hospital after a long stay with their sick children. Our hope is that these bags will help caregivers know that someone is thinking of them during this difficult time.
