Becky’s Gift toy drive
Last year, with all the support of the Scripps Ranch community, local businesses, friends and families, Becky’s Gift was able to surpass the goals and even added an extra cancer center to deliver toys to for the toy drive.
Becky’s Gift allows families affected by cancer the chance to choose a gift for their children or grandchildren during the holidays while undergoing treatment. Becky’s Gift helps make a difference to many families during the holiday season.
This is an emotionally, physically and financially stressful process for families. During the holidays, Becky’s Gift helps relieve some of this stress. Patients can focus on getting healthy during this time.
These families have stated “Becky’s Gift is truly a blessing at a time when cancer has taken over our family’s life,” and “Going through cancer, the focus has been all on me. It is nice that Becky’s Gift is available to give my kids toys.”
Becky’s Gift delivers toys to five cancer centers in San Diego: UCSD Moores Cancer Center, UCSD Breast Cancer Center, Oncology Associates of San Diego, South County Hematology and Oncology Center and Sharp Reese Stealy Kevin H. Cook Infusion and Oncology Center starting Thanksgiving week.
Becky’s Gift collects unwrapped new toys for children 1-16 years of age. Gift cards are also accepted.
Gifts can be dropped off at Scripps Rock Dental, 12112 Scripps Summit Drive, Suite C.; St. Gregory the Great Catholic School, 15315 Stonebridge Parkway; or contact Christie Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Becky Walton at email@example.com and they will pick up the gifts.
