Children’s Art Featured In 2013 Calendar

The holidays can be a tough time of year for many children, particularly those in foster care or struggling with mental-health issues, or whose families are financially fragile.

A local program that provides much needed services to more than 9,000 children and families each year is hoping the community will remember them this holiday season by helping to bring holiday happiness to children in need.

From buying a one-of-a-kind calendar to adopting a less fortunate family, there are many ways to help those served by Hathaway-Sycamores Sycamores Child and Family Services—the largest private provider of children’s mental-health services in Los Angeles County.

There are several ways that members of the community can support Hathaway-Sycamores’ efforts, including buying the organization’s 2013 Children’s Art Calendar, featuring iconic local landmarks as interpreted through the eyes of 12 aspiring young artists who receive services at the group’s Highland Park Family Resource Center.

Not only is the calendar both beautiful and affordable ($10, plus $5 shipping and handling), but proceeds will help fund life-changing services for the thousands of youngsters and families served annually by Hathaway-Sycamores.  The calendar can be ordered at www.hathaway-sycamores.org or by calling (626) 395-7100 ext. 2516.
