The Lutheran Family Health Centers, NETS Basketball and Health Plus teamed up to brighten the holidays for patients of the Sunset Park Family Health Center. Accompanied by Santa Claus, NETS dancers and NETS mascot, Sly, handed out holiday gifts to children.

Hundreds of children and their parents lined up to get their picture taken with Saint Nick. Barbie Dolls, Hot Wheels, and board games were among more than 325 toys that were donated.

LFHC and Health Plus have partnered with the NETS in the past to donate turkeys to area patients and families. They have also recently launched the second annual “Shoot for Better Health” campaign in local schools.

Endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, this unique initiative aims to improve fitness and dietary habits in children. As a major contributor to the program’s success, the NETS will also host a full-day basketball clinic March 2, and a reward night to honor participants at the Izod Center, March 24.
