San Diego County Credit Union collects almost 900 toys for San Diego’s only pediatric hospital

SDCCU hopes to put smiles on the faces of children at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego throughout 2016

Hundreds of children at Rady Children’s Hospital will receive toys throughout the year thanks to SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution. SDCCU customers and employees donated 865 toys for its sixth annual Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. 

Throughout December 2015, every one of SDCCU’s 38 convenient branch locations in Southern California served as an authorized drop-off location for new, unwrapped toys that were donated to Rady Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in California.
 
“SDCCU actively looks for ways to give back to the community, and we have supported Rady Children’s Hospital in the collection of toys for six consecutive years,” said Teresa Halleck, SDCCU president and CEO. “We are especially grateful to our customers and employees who joined us in our effort; their gifts are delivering a message of joy to the lives of critically injured children all year round.”
 
Donated items may be used throughout the year as gifts to individual patients in various age groups. In addition, donated items may be utilized in playrooms and support groups as in-room activities for patients and in conjunction with therapies.
 
Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego is a 520-bed pediatric care facility providing the largest source of comprehensive pediatric medical services in San Diego, Southern Riverside and Imperial counties. Rady Children’s is the only hospital in the San Diego area dedicated exclusively to pediatric healthcare and is the region’s only designated pediatric trauma center. In June 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rady Children’s among the best children’s hospitals in the nation in all ten pediatric specialties the magazine surveyed.
