Becky’s Gift toy drive is underway
The 13th annual Becky’s Gift Toy Drive to help families fighting cancer during the holiday season is underway.
Those going through treatment of cancer during the holidays face an emotionally, physically and financially difficult time. Becky’s Gift allows families affected by cancer to choose a toy for their children or grandchildren during the holidays while undergoing treatment. This way, cancer patients may focus on their treatment and health, and will not have to worry about the pressures of the season. They will know their child or grandchild will have a gift.
Thanks to the Scripps Ranch community, this nonprofit effort has surpassed all of its goals each year and successfully delivered loads of toys to local cancer centers in San Diego. Centers this year include UCSD Moores Cancer Center, Oncology Associates of San Diego and South County Hematology Oncology.
Anyone wishing to donate a present will help Becky’s Gift reach its goals. Those wishing to help may donate new, unwrapped toys for children ages 1-16 years old. Monetary donations and gift cards are also accepted.
Drop off sites include Scripps Rock Dental, 12112 Scripps Summit Drive, Suite C; and St. Gregory the Great Catholic School, 15315 Stonebridge Parkway.
