Reviews for LITTLE SAINT NICK FOUNDATION INC
I had to bring my 3 year old to the emergency room last month when he slipped and fell. He banged the back of his head and it started to swell very quickly. He was rushed to Franklin hospital where we were seen by doctors. We needed to be transferred to Cohen Children's hospital at 3:00am. We had already been in the hospital for almost 6 hours already and my baby was fed up with the whole experience. When we got to the emergency room at 3:30am we where given an emergency gift bag from The Little saint Nick Foundation. My poor baby had to be hooked up to more IV's and monitors and we were all scared. As he was being prepped for scan he grabbed the little teddy bear and clung to it the whole time. That small toy helped him get through the needles and scans and help him relax enough to get some sleep. Thankfully he was cleared and sent home the next day, but what started off as a scary day and a half of needles, scans and strange doctors turned the other direction. Because he had that teddy bear, he was able to calm down and finish all the scans to be clear to go home. I am eternally grateful for the Emergency Room Gift Bag and all that it did to keep my 3 year old calm and happy.
On December 17th 2014 Ray and The Little Saint Nick Foundation blessed 15 children with a trip to NYC and Toys R Us in Times Square. The children were full of smiles and excitement. After breakfast we boarded the bus and head off for NYC. We rode the infamous Toys R Us Ferris Wheel and went on a shopping spree that had the children in smiles from ear to ear. We sang Holiday Songs and had such an amazing day that I am compelled to let everyone know what a wonderful Foundation and Family we were so blessed to meet. Thank you everyone.....Much Love....Tina and Aidan
