The CRS clinic provides care for children with special healthcare needs from birth to young adulthood. Every year CRS hosts an all-day Christmas event at their clinic. The event includes a visit from Santa, a Christmas gift for every child in attendance, refreshments, crafts, and games. The party provides a safe and free event for patients and their families, many of which do not have the means to be able to pay to see Santa in the community. CRS also provides for patients who are immune compromised or require a lot of medical equipment that might deter them from attending other events. Their patients and their families look forward to attending this event every year.
100% of any monetary donation goes toward Christmas gifts or toys to be used for birthday gifts or rewards throughout the year. Any toys not used during Christmas are saved and provided as rewards for patients who undergo a hard procedure or work through something difficult with a provider. CRS also provides a gift to patients who are in the clinic on their birthday. Their goal is to help normalize the environment for patients and help them to celebrate events and holidays that they might not be able to celebrate due to their medical circumstances.
Please drop your unwrapped toy or donation off here at SO-CAL-AZ from now thru Saturday December 14th! We urge you refer to the Wish List for the most needed items. Thank you in advance for your support and donation.
Thank You Over The Hill Gang Phoenix for collecting items during your Christmas Party for this cause!
