Los Angeles-based National Wire and Cable, producers of custom manufacturing, moldings, and assemblies,
is making an impact on the children of the greater LA area, while setting an example for the business
community. National Wire and Cable’s Leadership and its employees have become Benefits that Benefit Children’s
Champions. On Friday, August 5th, members of the National Wire and Cable team presented a donation to Healing
Arts Reach Kids (HARK) benefiting the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Expressive Arts Therapy Program.
These funds will ensure that pediatric patients treated at Children’s Hospital will have adequate supplies
for therapeutic, creative activities during their hospitalizations. The donated funds were generated through
the Benefits that Benefit Children program in conjunction with voluntary employee benefits provided by Manhattan
Life, National Benefit Partners, and Leavitt Insurance Services of Los Angeles.
"When you give back within your community, it’s a great way to show you care and also get to know more people"", said Ross Pendergraft with Leavitt Insurance Services of Los Angeles.
Benefits that Benefit Children (www.BenefitsThatBenefitChildren.com) is the philanthropic
division of National Benefit Partners, the program allows companies to provide donations to local or national children’s charities as
a part of the company’s routine employee benefit offerings.
Healing Arts Reaching Kids (HARK) is a not-for-profit entity serving Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
