For the eighth consecutive year, Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children’s) patients will be the recipients of toys all throughout the year thanks to SDCCU. SDCCU’s customers and employees donated more than 1,600 toys this year to more than double last year’s donation for the annual Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and CHOC Children’s.
New, unwrapped toys were collected throughout November and December 2017 at all of SDCCU’s 43 convenient branch locations in San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties to be delivered this month to Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and CHOC Children’s. Toys will be distributed and used throughout the year to help bring comfort and support to patients.
“SDCCU is committed to supporting Rady Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Orange County through the annual Holiday Toy Drive,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “We are incredibly grateful to our customers and employees for giving so generously and helping us more than double the number of toys we’re able to donate this year. It is our sincere hope that these toys help make life at the hospital a little easier for pediatric patients.”
