SAN DIEGO, Calif., (January 29, 2020)—For the tenth consecutive year, children who are patients at Southern California pediatric hospitals will receive toys throughout the year thanks to San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®)
, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution. SDCCU’s customers and employees donated more than 2,000 toys this year for the annual Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and CHOC Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
