Family-Friendly Holiday Activities Provide Opportunities to Support Care for 107,000 Young Patients Treated Each Year for Life-Threatening Illnesses.

Credit Unions for Kids Generously Donates $530,000 as a Challenge Grant to the L.A. Community.

For 114 years, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has created hope and built healthier futures for critically ill and injured children in Los Angeles. This holiday season, the Live L.A. Give L.A. campaign enlists celebrities, corporate partners and media organizations to ask Angelenos to support CHLA’s mission and fight childhood cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders, bone and skeletal conditions and other catastrophic conditions ailing children right here at home.

Starting today and extending through the end of the year, the Live L.A. Give L.A. campaign raises funds that will directly support care for the children of Los Angeles. Providing the finest pediatric medical care and research comes with an immense cost—and the needs are urgent. A gift to the Live L.A. Give L.A. campaign helps safeguard the community’s sickest children by providing the support that the nonprofit pediatric hospital needs to conduct leading-edge research and ensure that critical, lifesaving care is available to every child the hospital treats.

Community organizations like Credit Unions for Kids (CU4KIDS), a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, are partnering with CHLA in support of the hospital’s campaign. The organization’s donation of $530,000 is a dollar-for-dollar challenge match grant to the Los Angeles community.

CHLA is teaming up with community partners to provide Los Angeles families with fun, convenient ways to support its mission. Partners for this effort include the Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Clippers, KABC, KIIS FM and iHeartRadio.
