Kling Street Kids 17th Annual Event

Luxury Flush Partners with Kling Street Kids

On December 21st, Luxury Flush partnered with Los Angeles non-profit, Kling Street Kids to donate a 5 station extended luxury trailer and services for their 17th annual holiday fundraiser focused on supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA).

Kling Street Kids 17th Annual EventKling Street Kids began in 2002 when two kids, Cady and Callie, only 7 and 9 years old at the time, wanted to help cheer up children who spend the holidays in the hospital and the mission remains the same years later – kids helping kids,” shared Kara Barron, with Kling Street Kids. “Our December event focuses on kids volunteering and giving back.”

When the organization began, the Kling Street Kids started by selling coffee, doughnuts, hot chocolate, pizza and handmade reindeer ornaments outside their homes the mornings of December 23rd and 24th. Through the generosity of their neighborhood and the local Starbucks of Toluca Lake, they raised $549.57 that they donated as a Christmas present to the Los Angeles Chapter of Make-A-Wish. The next year, Krispy Kreme and Trader Joe’s also contributed, and the kids nearly quadrupled their fundraising. They decided to give the money to Children’s Hospital and began a new tradition of visiting on Christmas Eve to deliver the donations directly. This is one of the biggest highlights of the event itself.

“Kling Sreet Kids has grown year by year, with many additions including a host of sponsors, a silent auction, 10 tons of snow, live music, carnival rides, face painting, food vendors and the opportunity to sponsor a Pillow Pet and write a special message to be donated along with the stuffed animal to CHLA on Christmas Eve,” continued Kara. “It is very important and crucial that we get sponsorships as well as donations from businesses because we want to go into the event in the green. If this happens then we are able to donate 100% of the money we raise to the hospital.”

The focus of the December event is bringing the community together during the holiday season to be a part of something bigger and giving back to a great cause. Over the past 18 years, Kling Street Kids has raised over $230,000 primarily for CHLA (Pediatric Cardiac Unit) this year alone, they raised $32,500!

“We were so amazed and thankful for the generous donation from Luxury Flush,” said Kara. “We hope that this will start a relationship between Kling Street Kids and Luxury Flush for each year’s event.”

At Luxury Flush, we believe in partnering with local non-profit organizations and acting on the needs of the community by donating time, money and porta potties for events like Kling Street Kids. “It is humbling to be a part of a great organization and group of kids that desire to give back to other children,” added Louis Downey, Luxury Flush owner.
