The Committee to Benefit the Children
The Committee to Benefit the Children is a 501(c)(3) volunteered based charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and their families who face cancer, leukemia and serious blood disorders. Established in 1980, the CBC has been serving these patients and families in the Delaware Valley and beyond who are treated at the Hematology-Oncology Division of St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
Through our fundraiser’s and events, more than $2.5 million has been raised for the children. All funds are earmarked for the Psycho-Social, non-medical needs desperately sought in the treatment of childhood cancers, sickle cell disease and life threatening blood disorders. CBC is a United Way Donor Choice #4277.
In response to the needs of these children and their families, CBC receives referrals from St. Christopher’s Oncology & Hematology social workers, who are most able to provide background information and help to identify specific needs. CBC reviews the request and a decision is returned almost immediately. More difficult requests are returned within 24-48 hours.
CBC provides direct financial assistance with non-medical, essential expenses which are not covered by other agencies/insurances, i.e.: meal vouchers, parking, snacks & toys while in treatment, family living expenses, such as rent/mortgage, utility bills, phone, transportation, car insurance, health insurance, prosthetics (wigs included), child care, counseling & referral services and sadly, funeral expenses. The event producers have donated more than $50,000 to the Committee to Benefit the Children (CBC), a local Philadelphia charity associated with St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
