Howard Rudzki Donates Toys to Children’s Hospital

Local Real Estate Philanthropist Howard Rudzki Donates Toys to Orthopaedic Hospital

Furthering his commitment to making a difference in the lives of children in Los Angeles , local real estate philanthropist, Howard Rudzki, has donated 10 cases of plush toys and 10 video game systems to Orthopaedic Hospital this holiday season.

The donation will be used to bring some of the comforts of home to young patients staying at the hospital during the holiday season. The plush toys and game systems were graciously received by the coordinators at the hospital, and will be handed out to age-appropriate children according to the hospital’s policies.

“Birthdays and Christmas are two times that are special in the lives of a child,” Rudzki said. “I think it is important to bring smiles to children’s faces, especially when they are battling illness or other challenges and I am hoping that this donation will make the stay of these children a little brighter during the holiday season.”

Eloise Helwig, a spokesperson for the hospital said that the toys and consoles are a welcome gift at Orthopaedic Hospital.  “This donation is more than just about giving toys and game consoles. It is the extra, added comfort that these young patients  will receive while they are here in the hospital.  We are so appreciative to Mr. Rudzki and all of generous donors who regularly support us.”

Located in downtown Los Angeles, Orthopaedic Hospital provides care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders regardless of the family’s ability to pay. For more than a century the hospital has been committed to helping children lead healthy, active lives.
