SDCCU members donate to help bring joy to pediatric patients

SAN DIEGO, CA (February 8, 2018) — 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 San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution. 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.
