Children’s Hospital Los Angeles receives donation from Nationwide Private Client and Randall Insurance

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) Helping Hands Fund received a $5,000 Partners in Giving donation from Nationwide Private Client in honor of Randall Insurance. The money will help the hospital ensure that all of its patients receive the critical, lifesaving care they need.

Private Client is Nationwide's personal lines carrier focused on the affluent market. Its appointed independent agents are offered an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others with charitable donations in their local communities through the Partners in Giving program.

“Partners in Giving provides our agency partners with opportunities for us to make charitable donations on their behalf — helping them give back to the communities where they live and work,” stated Jim Pedersen, president, Nationwide Private Client. “This form of giving is foundational to our culture and integral to our success. It is a constant reminder that, in our efforts to serve our clients, we are also generating meaningful support for local communities.”

“We selected CHLA for our third Partners in Giving donation because we appreciate the work they do in Southern California, not only for the children, but for the families in need whose children have cancer, birth defects or other illness,” said Richard Bryant, principal, Randall Insurance.

“CHLA relies on the generosity of philanthropists in the community to support compassionate patient care, leading-edge education for the caregivers of tomorrow and innovative research efforts that impact children at our hospital,” said Debra King, associate vice president, development, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

To date, Private Client has contributed $740,000 to organizations in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Texas and Washington through the Partners in Giving program. Private Client has committed an additional $291,000 for further charitable donations.
