How You Can Help


Help A Child Smile: An organization dedicated to bringing smiles to the faces of children facing cancer treatment at McMaster Children’s Hospital.

Help A Child Smile needs volunteers for several events each year. We will credit students with volunteer hours for school if needed, but adults are most welcome to help as well. The duties are varied since each event is different and instruction will be given beforehand to make sure you are comfortable with your assigned task.

Please complete this form outlining how you’d like to help. We thank you in advance for helping HACS help kids!


HACS is a charitable organization founded and run by volunteers, totally dependent on donations and fundraising events to fund our programs. Please consider donating to help HACS help kids.

Thanks to the generous support of compassionate people like you, we are able to continue to provide support and smile opportunities to families battling childhood cancer.
