Polar express Christmas party for pediatric patients at covenant hospital

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The annual Polar Express Christmas Party for the children at the Covenant Women's and Children's Hospital will be held Thursday, December 23rd from 10 until 11 a.m. in the third floor party room at Covenant Women's and Children's Hospital.

The goal of the party is to give the children and their families a fun and special Christmas time, and a chance to get a fun break from their daily hospital routine. In addition to the party, the Covenant Children's Hospital Holiday and Special Events Committee will be providing a meal for the staff to express gratitude towards the hospital's employees.

"The kids and staff look forward to the Polar Express party every year," said Covenant Child Life Specialist Stephanie Thompson. "The children like to get dressed up in their pajamas and it provides incentive for the kids to meet a specific goal for the party, like to sit up, walk to the end of the hall, or even to take a bath."

The theme of the party will include characters and activities from the Polar Express book and movie
