Jennifer Lawrence knows the true meaning of the holiday season. The 27-year-old spent Christmas Eve spreading joy to young patients and their families at Norton Children’s in her hometown of Louisville, KY. “Louisville’s own Jennifer Lawrence stopped by Norton Children’s Hospital today to visit with patients, families, and staff,” the hospital captioned a sweet photo of the star, who dressed casually for the occasion in a black top and pulled-back ponytail while posing with the employees. “Thank you, Jennifer! You sure do bring a smile to all!”
The Mother! actress also took photos with the children during her annual holiday visit which comes one year after her donation of $2 million to the hospital which helped launch the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. The 14-bed unit reportedly offers private rooms for families to stay with their children who are recovering from heart-related procedures, including open-heart surgery and “other conditions requiring intensive care“.
