Toy Drive Delivers Joy

Cabrillo Credit Union Partners with Olive Crest - Toy Drive 2024, Bringing Joy to San Diego Communities

San Diego, CA – 12/20/23 – Cabrillo Credit Union is proud to announce its successful collaboration with Olive Crest for the Olive Crest Toy Drive 2023, an initiative that has brought warmth and joy to the hearts of families and children across San Diego County. This partnership exemplifies Cabrillo Credit Union's commitment to community outreach and supporting local organizations dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of San Diego residents.

In a heartwarming display of generosity and solidarity, members of Cabrillo Credit Union rallied together to donate toys for children in need. These donated toys were distributed to four local San Diego Community branches, including La Mesa, Chula Vista, Downtown San Diego, and Scripps Ranch, where they found their way into the hands of deserving children, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Olive Crest.

Olive Crest, an organization deeply rooted in the belief that every child deserves a strong family, played a crucial role in ensuring the success of the Olive Crest Toy Drive 2023. In San Diego County, the number of abused or neglected children in the welfare system is alarmingly high and continues to rise. Olive Crest, along with the support of Cabrillo Credit Union and its members, is fearlessly combatting this cycle of abuse by connecting loving families with children who desperately need safety, care, and support.

"Our foster families and host families are committed to helping children and families in San Diego thrive... One Life at a Time®. Through partnerships like the one we've built with Cabrillo Credit Union, we are making significant strides in creating a safer and more nurturing environment for these vulnerable children." - Olive Crest

Olive Crest's mission extends far beyond the Toy Drive. Over the last five decades, Olive Crest has transformed the lives of more than 200,000 children and families by preventing child abuse, equipping and educating children in crisis, and preserving families—One Life At A Time.® The organization serves over 5,000 children and families every day, provides 318 Transitional Age Youth with the tools they need for life, ensures 412,242 safe days for children in 2023, and maintains an impressive 98.9% rate of finding safety and stability for children in their care.

Olive Crest conducts over 83,000 counseling sessions annually and benefits from over 3,600,000 volunteer hours dedicated to caring for children and families each year. Their holistic approach to strengthening, equipping, and restoring children in crisis has proven highly effective in breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect, empowering families to become healthy and productive in their communities.

Cabrillo Credit Union is excited about the opportunity to continue working closely with Olive Crest on future initiatives to benefit children and families throughout the San Diego area. This partnership embodies our shared commitment to making a positive difference, one life at a time.
