A few weeks ago we told you about the Katz brothers, two of Lasky Pediatric Group patients, and their idea for a community service project for Halloween. Both students at the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, Jacob and Dylan decided they wanted to be Halloween fairies. To do that, they created two hundred goody bags filled with candy for children who might not get to go out trick or treating this year.
Lasky Pediatric Dental Group provided the boys with something else to put in their bags – a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste – as it is very important children brush after eating or in this case, enjoying their candy. The brothers donated the bags to PATH (People Assisting the Homeless), a Southern California network of agencies that assist individuals and families who are facing homelessness.
“The homeless children and their families were so happy to receive the Halloween treats,” said Jenifer, Jacob and Dylan’s mother in a note to LPDG.
Not only were they great fairies, the team at the Lasky Pediatric Dental Group think Jacob and Dylan Katz are heroes for completing their project and for making some children’s Halloween a whole lot brighter!
