SDCCU has launched its sixth annual Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego, San Diego’s only hospital dedicated solely to pediatric care.
Through Dec. 31, 2015, every one of SDCCU’s 38 convenient branch locations throughout Southern California will serve as an authorized drop-off location for new, unwrapped toys. All toys will be donated to Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.
“We encourage our customers to join us in our effort to put a smile on the faces and warm the hearts of critically ill children being cared for at Rady Children’s Hospital. We want to deliver a message of joy to courageous youngsters who find themselves in need of pediatric healthcare,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
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 cannot accept stuffed animals or violent-themed toys, such as guns, etc.
Last holiday season, SDCCU’s customers and employees donated more than 1,000 toys in support of SDCCU’s fifth annual Holiday Toy Drive.
