The holidays can be an especially difficult time for children and their families at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. Knowing that, first responders came to the rescue on December 20 by bringing Santa to the hospital escorted by more than 100 emergency vehicles. With lights flashing and sirens sounding, the vehicles surrounded the hospital putting on a spectacular holiday light show for children who waved back from their rooms.
Children are often at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital for extended periods as they battle heart disease, cancer, traumatic injuries and other serious ailments. Events like Good Night Lights offer fun and a positive distraction for hospitalized children and their families.
Thank you to Westchester County Police Department for coordinating Good Night Lights!
