BENEFITING: PROVIDENCE HEALTH & SERVICES FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Dec 05, 2016

Lauren Hissrich

THE STORY:

It's been six years since I first called Michelle Lankwarden and asked if she wanted to donate some toys to a hospital. Since then, in partnership with Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, we've delivered almost $65,000 worth of toys, coats, socks, underwear, toiletries, and gift cards to needy families across Los Angeles

Why Saint Joseph's? Easy. They saved the life of our firstborn son, Harry, when he arrived in this world 5 weeks early. We wanted to give back to them, for all they'd given us.

And since that day, we've continued to be inspired by the hospital's Mission Leadership and Services, who work tirelessly to help the less fortunate in our community. Through our drive, we've been able to spread cheer to families not only at the hospital itself, but in local shelters and organizations, including Family Promise of the Verdugos, Hope of the Valley Shelter, Covenant House California, San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, and the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and the East Valley (Mike and I have visited these organizations, and seen the work they've done. It's incredible. See links below for more information!)  

Now is where you come in. We'd love your help and support. We're once again partnering with the Providence Health and Services Foundation to make ALL DONATIONS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. And rest assured, the funds you donate are spent directly on toys and goods for the children at Saint Joseph's and these organizations. I know this, because at the end of our two week drive, we take one morning and personally spend every penny at Target, shopping our hearts out for others. We take volunteers with us every year. It's the best morning you can possibly imagine. 

Please give if you can. If you can't, we understand: there are so many opportunities to do great things for those in need during the holidays, so if you're tapped out, good for you and good for the world! Regardless, please consider passing this message on to others. This drive has become one of the greatest blessings of our lives. Let's keep it going. 

We're so grateful for you all.

Mike, Lauren, Harry, and Ben Hissrich
