While Scott was in town he helped give out toys and take photos with the children and their families at the annual event for special needs children hosted by Alicia’s House Food Pantry. He also helped pass out food and toys to the needy at the Alicia’s House Food Pantry annual Christmas Party. Scott was joined by former Chicago Cubs pitcher Milt Pappas, and Alicia’s House Founder and former wrestler Juan Hernandez. In 2011 Scott along with Milt Pappas and other celebrities helped Alicia’s House Food Pantry raise over $50,000 and in 2012 they raised over $63,000.

This Christmas Scott also took a very special trip to Rustburg, VA to visit Nathan Norman and spread some holiday cheer. Nathan was diagnosed with a low-grade astrocytoma (brain cancer) in Jan 2009. Also an LA County Sherriff, Scott wanted to make sure Nathan received his gifts (several of which were donated by LA County Sherriff’s Department and Scott). Scott had the honor of spending time with Nathan and his family and bringing them gifts and spreading cheer. For more information about Nathan please visit www.caringbridge.org/visit/nathannorman.
Scott L. Schwartz is widely known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his acting career including: Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Spiderman, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Mentalist, Castle, among other feature films and TV shows. What most fans don’t know is that Scott is really “The Ultimate Nice Guy” and has been visiting children’s hospitals worldwide for the past 14 years after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. He realizes the value and impact of making a lasting impression on children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special. Scott enjoys visiting pediatric hospitals and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits. They are always smiling during his visits and usually begging him to return soon. In 2012 Scott was the recipient of the CHOC Glass Slipper Guild Award (a prestigious award that others like David Beckham, Gwen Stefani among others have received).
The Scott L. Schwartz Children's Foundation is making a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide, helping Alicia’s House Food Pantry, Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), Toys for Tots Foundation, and various Children’s Hospitals worldwide.
