“General Hospital” star Ryan Paevey (Nathan West) spent time on Saturday, December 12 volunteer at the VOICE Holiday Party hosted by the Los Angeles Police Department Child Abuse Unit. VOICE stands for Victims Overcoming Injustice Child Abuse and Endangerment.
On December 11 the Anna Forlenza Foundation tweeted, “@RyanPaevey Thanks for volunteering at our Voice event this saturday hosted by the LAPD for Foster Care Children/teens. Xo.” Ryan tweeted back, “@AnnaForlenzaFdn Looking forward to it!” Anna complimented Ryan saying that he is an amazing individual and that the foundation “is lucky to have you with us.”
What is the Anna Forlenza Foundation? A non-profit organization located in California, the mission of the foundation is to protect children, and advocate for services and policies for health services and care delivered to foster children and other children in situations where child protective services are involved. The foundation strives to maximize each child’s physical, social, and emotional well-being using evidence-based and scientifically driven approaches.
Ryan graciously gave of his time and talent to the VOICE Holiday Party 2015 and “GH” fans appreciate that the actor cares so much about children and their needs. You do not need to live in California to help. “General Hospital” fans, or anyone else, can visit the Anna Forlenza Foundation website and make a donation via most major credit cards or PayPal. All donations are tax deductible.
The ultimate goal of the Anna Forlenza Foundation is to be able to reach out to foster children and those at risk of entering the foster care system in every State. In the words of Anna Forlenza, “Children deserve respect, love and Kindness.” By volunteering his time “GH” star Ryan Paevey greatly helped that mission this weekend.
