Our Angels of Light Hudson Valley child this year is
JARED MCINTOSH.

Every year for the past 16 years we ask our team and clients to pick an ornament off our tree with a gift from the child’s wish list and return it unwrapped to us no later than December 15th. That’s just two weeks away!

This handsome 13 year old was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma Sarcoma in September 202, which is a cancer of the soft tissue. Jared has had 6 surgeries and many rounds of chemotherapy and radiation as his cancer was mainly in his neck and head. According to his mom, Jared is kind, intelligent. thoughtful and happy. He enjoys riding his bike and playing with his brothers, especially his 5 year old brother Jonathan, who admires him greatly.

This year Jared wants two gifts: 

  • Splatoon 2 (October Expansion) for Nintendo Switch
  • Apple Airpods 3rd generation.

If you choose to contribute, we are asking you to bring in an Amazon gift card for any amount you can afford so we may purchase the two gifts he wants. This is to save time as supply, demand and delivery is a challenge this year. We do this to take the burden of the holiday off the family as they navigate hospital treatments and patient care.

Mom also says Jared never complains, is optimistic about his situation and everyone that meets him, (mostly his nurses) say he is well mannered, pleasant and mature for his age. Mom says “I am most appreciative of the kindness and thoughtful gesture of those who help through the Angels of Light Foundation to bring joy during a difficult time for families”.

Stop by before December 15th if you would like to contribute!

We give back to the community through donations of gift cards and products as well as on-site and off-site services for a variety of causes that are meaningful to us as a team. We ask that you email a donation request if you are seeking a donation. We no longer respond to phone requests or solicitation in-house as we find this to be inefficient and our focus is to serve our guests.
