For the Need Holiday Party - 2019

20th Annual Holiday Party for Children

Saturday, December 14th, 2019
Where: LA County & USC Medical Center
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm ...

Christmas is suppose to be a magical time for children, but for many kids who are sick, the Christmas holiday season can be spent in the County hospital system with little to no cheer. These kids are being treated for cancer, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, kidney disease, burns, developmental disabilities or have been physically affected by violence. That’s why we, at Spartan Truck Company, are partnering with For the Need Foundation (FTN) to lift their spirits, add a sparkle to their eyes, and brighten their holidays at our 20th Annual Holiday Party for Children.

County hospitals are often overlooked for donations and many of the patients have no visitors over the holiday season. That’s why our event takes place on Saturday, December 14th at LA County Medical Center. There we will host a fantastic Christmas party for these special children. There will be a magic show, dancers, and lots of crafts! We’ve planned a busy day of face painting, cupcake decorating, and ornament making. We’ll also have some sing-along Christmas caroling, and of course, a visit from Santa Claus with plenty of presents for kids of all ages. Spartan Truck and FTN volunteers will also be taking 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 are often overlooked during the holiday season. A delicious lunch will be provided for all the families again this year by Larsen’s Restaurants.

Thank you for your support!
