Pediatric Christmas Rehabilitation Party

Tuesday’s open house is not the only pediatrics-related event being held by the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System.

The SRHS also announced Monday that “nearly 500 children will receive an unexpected Christmas gift.”

The press release states that “on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., the 19th Annual Pediatric Rehabilitation Christmas Party will be held in the Spartanburg Medical Center Regional Outpatient Lobby (facing Church Street).

The event is sponsored by the Judy Bradshaw Foundation and the Spartanburg Regional Foundation and “through their generosity, children with developmental disorders will receive gifts that will help them grow and learn. Each gift is selected by the child’s speech, physical or occupational therapist with their specific needs in mind. For example, a child with speech disabilities may receive a karaoke machine, or a child who needs help with social situations will receive a play kitchen.”

The event is invitation-only for children in the rehabilitation program and their parents.
