For the Need Holiday Party - 2017

18th Annual Holiday Party for Needy Children

Saturday, December 16th, 2017
Where: LA County & USC Medical Center
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm ...

Christmas is just around the corner and we at Spartan Truck Company are partnering with For The Need Foundation (FTN) to sponsor our 18th Annual Holiday Party for Children.

This event is for children struggling with cancer, Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, kidney disease, burns, developmental disabilities, as well as many who have been affected by violence.

This year’s party will take place on Saturday, December 16th at LA County & USC Medical Center. We expect to have over 200 children, infant through 18 years, and their families in attendance.

Also, FTN will host an additional party for the in-patient pediatrics unit that serves children and their families who are unable, due to the seriousness of their condition, to attend the larger event. In addition, Spartan Truck, and FTN volunteers will take presents and good cheer room-by-room and floor-by-floor to many of the adult in-patients who are too ill to leave the hospital and often overlooked during the holiday season.

We have secured a professional Marionette, as well as a crew of energetic volunteers. There will be face painting, cupcake decorating, caroling, ornament making and of course Santa Claus with plenty of presents. Lunch will be provided again this year by Larsen’s Restaurants.

For The Need is a non-profit foundation specfically created to provide financial and/or material assistance to needy children, adults and their families. To date FTN has served thousands of children, adults and their families through this annual event. That’s why we at Spartan Truck are so passionate and willing to sponsor this great event year after year.

For many of these children the "Holiday Party for Children" is the only holiday celebration they will experience this year.

Please partner with us by donating $10, $50, $100 or more.
FTN is entirely organized and managed by volunteers.
You can be assured that 100% of your tax-deductible donation will be used to support children who are in need.
