SAN DIEGO, CA (December 8, 2022) — North Island Credit Union has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego to bring some holiday magic to hundreds of Club kids across San Diego County.

“We are honored to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego in making the holidays a special, joy-filled time for so many families across our communities,” said North Island Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell. “We were overwhelmed with the generosity of our members, community, and credit union team in donating to our toy drive – and the caring and excitement they shared with us to spread the spirit of giving during this holiday season.”

All of the toys and gifts were donated by North Island Credit Union, its employees and members in a month-long drive in all of its 10 branch locations in San Diego County. All gifts will be wrapped and distributed during the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego holiday celebrations throughout the month.
