Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has made a substantial donation to a children’s hospital in Los Angeles.

The Children's Hospital Los Angeles announced on Thursday that the 27-year-old socialite had made an “extremely generous” donation towards the construction of a new building at their facility – a 460,000-square-foot Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, expected to open in 2010.

“I am so happy and fortunate to announce my support for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” said Hilton. “The children I have met through my involvement with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles have truly touched my heart. I am proud to make a donation and lend my name to the fundraising effort to help children who are facing terribly serious illnesses. The fabulous new hospital facilities at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will provide a caring, healing environment for children and their families for many years to come.”

Hilton began her association with the hospital following her release from jail last year, and has also donated the proceeds from the launch of her eponymous clothing line last August to the facility. The size of the latest donation has yet to be made public.
