UCLA alum and current Los Angeles Lakers Jordan Farmar will celebrate the holidays with pediatric patients and families at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA this Wednesday afternoon (Dec. 23). He will distribute gifts that were donated to the Jordan Farmar Foundation at the recent Ansun Management "Home for the Holidays Toy Drive"--an annual event which supports local organizations dedicated to assisting children and families.
Farmar has an ongoing commitment to Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. Over the past two NBA seasons, the Jordan Farmar Foundation's Making Dreams Come True program arranged for more than 30 patients and family members to attend a Lakers game, dine with Jordan's family and participate in a meet-and-greet with Farmar and other players after the game. The Foundation is also currently working to fund the development of an environmentally-friendly "Green Room" in the hospital's teen lounge.
A former UCLA basketball star, Farmar's foundation is committed to the health, hope and healing of children in need -- and to support charitable programs that build values, develop character, create opportunities and promote positive attitudes. The UCLA Health System is the "official health system of the Los Angeles Lakers."
