Langley Gives Back

Langley Health Services is a proud supporter of its community and strives to provide more than just health services to the people it serves.

For more than eight years, Langley Health Services has provided the children in Sumter County with a day where they all can enjoy the spirit of Christmas without fear of the cost of such activities. At the Annual Laura Vickers Christmas for Kids party, everyone is invited for food, fun, games and prizes. The children get to meet with Santa and Mrs. Claus and receive a Christmas present from them.

Langley Health Services is always looking for help with this annual Christmas celebration. New, unwrapped toys are welcome, as are volunteers who’d like to come to LHS to make this day great for everyone. Don’t have time to shop or volunteer? Cash donations go a long way towards offsetting the cost of food and activities, and Langley has plenty of shopping elves.

The Healthy Start Project at LHS also supports the children of the community at Christmas time. Healthy Start “Adopts” families in need at Christmas, providing an angel tree for community volunteers to purchase gifts for these families and coordinating the delivery of the gifts just in time to go under the Christmas tree. You can contact the Healthy Start Program for details on how you can adopt a child, or a whole family, this Christmas.

In addition to supporting families at Christmas, the Healthy Start Program hosts and annual World’s Greatest Baby Shower for their patients, providing fun, games, and prizes that will help these new mothers and their children. The party is always a lot of fun, as you can see here.

Langley Health Services has been a long time supporter of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. In the past, LHS teams have raised over $20,000 to support cancer research and provide support for those living through cancer. For more information on how you can support the American Cancer Society.
