Shriners Christmas Party

June 23, 2023

Since December 2017, VP Saint Louis volunteers have been donning capes, masks, and costumes to embark on a truly remarkable mission: to bring smiles, laughter, and a touch of magic to the children at Shriners Hospital. Dressed as superheroes, movie characters, and beloved figures from stories, our dedicated volunteers travel to the Shriners HQ in Creve Coeur, MO, where they entertain the young patients in the Shriners hospital system.

Our team of superheroes and character enthusiasts doesn't just bring costumes and laughter to Shriners Hospital. We also carry with us an abundance of love, compassion, and hope. We understand that for these brave children, a hospital can sometimes feel like an overwhelming and unfamiliar place. Through our visits, we aim to create an environment of joy and normalcy, where imaginations can soar and dreams can come true.

In addition to providing entertainment, we also bring gifts to brighten the children's days. VP Saint Louis members come together to gather stuffed animals and other toys, which we lovingly deliver to the young patients. These tokens of care and comfort offer moments of solace and a reminder that they are surrounded by a community that cares deeply about their well-being.

The impact of our visits goes beyond the immediate joy and excitement. They foster a sense of connection, inspiration, and resilience within the children. By witnessing their favorite superheroes and characters come to life, they are reminded of their own inner strength and courage. Our visits serve as a powerful reminder that they are not alone in their journey and that there are real-life heroes cheering them on.

At VP Saint Louis, we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the exceptional work of Shriners Hospital. We are in awe of the dedication and compassion displayed by the hospital staff, who tirelessly care for these children and their families. Our visits are a small way for us to show our support and gratitude for the life-changing care they provide.

At VP Saint Louis, we believe that superheroes come in many forms—both in fiction and in reality. By embodying the spirit of these characters, we strive to inspire and uplift those who need it most. Together, we can make a lasting impact and create moments of joy and hope that will forever remain in the hearts of the children at Shriners Hospital.
