Due to Covid-19, we have temporally stopped our monthly drop offs and are now working to donate toys for the hospital prize box. We have also been mailing thank you cards to the doctors and nurses at Rady Children's Hospital to further express our gratitude. Additionally, due to COVID and in the spirit of the holiday season, we are pivoting in an effort to meet a need during these times. We are partnering with the Rancho De los Niños Orphanage and collecting presents and warm clothes to gift the kids during the holidays. You can help make a difference in these kids lives by donating, purchasing and item for a kid on our Amazon Wishlist, or simply spreading the word! We would really appreciate it if you could help with these efforts by donating. Thank you!
