On Saturday, December 10th, the Brain Injury Services Pediatric Case Management Program hosted a holiday-themed Parent’s Night Out at the Mott Community Center in Fairfax. This event provided the parents of the program a much needed night out while their children enjoyed a holiday party hosted by the Brain Injury Services’ staff. The children made holiday crafts, played games, and fueled up on pizza and cookies. Santa Claus surprised all with a visit and presented gifts to each child.
“Going to Parent’s Night Out is really fun…” said Maya S. “And my parents get to go out on a date with just the two of them. I think it’s kind of gross but I guess they have fun too. But not as much fun as I have!”
Even though the parents did not stick around for the holiday party, they all received a special present of their own. Parents received a special gift bag with various holiday items including and a jewelry piece for the moms, donated by Kendra Scott.
After the event, Jo Thompson, the Director of the Pediatric Program said, “This is always an event that the staff in our program looks forward to every year. It is very heartwarming to see our clients and their siblings making friends and having fun. We also enjoy being able to provide the parents with a break as well, especially during the busy holiday season.”
