Putting Fun in Festivities


“We come to this party every year to provide arts and crafts activities and bring some camp fun to the holiday party,” explains Teresa Molello (pictured left), a volunteer with Painted Turtles. Painted Turtles partners with UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital to make their annual Holiday Party a success. Katie Griffith (pictured right) says, “Painted Turtle is a year-round camp program for kids with medical conditions. UCLA Health is one ofthe hospitals we bring camp to.” Nodding, Glenn Bozarth (pictured center) adds, “We can really see what it means to these kids. When they come out of their hospital rooms, often with an IV attached, they are able to get outdoors and have some fun.”
