Van Nuys, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Hundreds of pediatric patients are receiving something very special to make their time at the hospital a little easier: brand new toys. Valley Presbyterian Hospital is the proud recipient of Kids Wish Network's unique Gift Bank program. Kids Wish Network, a national charity dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children, is honored to be able to provide toys with a retail value of over $100,000 to the hospital to be given to its young patients. Megatrux, Inc is sponsoring this exciting event.
The hospital and Kids Wish Network are planning a special 'kick off' party to be held March 6th. During the festivities, representatives on both ends, along with their honorary sponsor, will give toys out to the children. Toys will then continue to be distributed to pediatric patients coming in throughout the year for treatment.
Megatrux, Inc., and the Megatrux companies, are one of the largest privately owned transportation, shipping & warehousing networks on the entire globe and have played a truly significant role in behind-the-scenes assistance to Kids Wish Network and its many programs. "Our whole team is very supportive and proud of its association with Kids Wish Network," said Karen Pelle, President of Megatrux, Inc.
"Valley Presbyterian Hospital is proud to partner with Kids Wish Network," said Albert L. Greene, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The toy distribution program certainly will please the children who come to our Emergency Department and into our pediatric units. With the help and support of the Kids Wish Network we will continue to provide to the children of the San Fernando Valley high quality health care within an environment of dignity, respect and compassion."
Sylvia V. Henry, Director of the Valley Presbyterian Hospital Foundation was also extremely grateful for the donation. "The Kids Wish Network gift-giving program will help make the hospital a better place throughout the year for our pediatric patients and their families."
