Julia Cobb - JuCan Foundation Toy Drive & Adopt-a-FamilyIn 2017, JuCan delivered 10,000+ Toys to The MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital and we provided a full Christmas to 10 families fighting Cancer. Our 2018 #JuCanGiveToyDrive is underway...and we NEED YOUR HELP!
In addition to our massive Toy Drive for the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, JuCan has received numerous requests from Houston families in desperate need of assistance with Christmas. In order to share the magic of Christmas with our families, we need your help. Would your business, school, church, or group consider being a collection location for our toy drive, and/or, would you consider sponsoring one or more of our amazing families?

Thank you to our 2018 Partners
The JuCan Foundation Annual Toy Drive is patterned after 8 yr old Julia Cobb’s own heart. It began in 2012 when she hand-delivered toys that she collected and shopped for during her treatment for bone cancer. Ju wanted every child to have a great Christmas and experience the magic of toys under the tree. What started as just a small toy collection in 2012, has grown to JuCan collecting over 10,000+ toys yearly in the Houston community. Please help carry on Julia Cobb’s legacy of giving to make our 6th year a giant success for families fighting cancer. SHARE THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS!
The toy drive benefits the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital in Houston, Texas, in addition to JuCan Families in cancer treatment. Families in need of assistance with Christmas are nominated to our foundation through hospitals and other local organizations. JuCan works to connect these families with a sponsor.
- Register your organization as a collection center by contacting Jennifer at 713-413-7547. Volunteer to help deliver/ pickup collection boxes, adopt a “JuCan” family and fulfill their Christmas wish list. You can also donate online and designate your gift to the “2017 Toy Drive.” 100% of the proceeds go towards the toy drive & families in cancer treatment.
