We felt there was no better way to express our gratitude for all the blessings we have in life than to brighten the holidays for children and families facing terminal illness. - Tina Cameron, Charitable Foundation Director
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2015
Gibson International real estate announces a holiday toy drive benefiting the TrinityKids Care program at Providence TrinityCare Hospital in Torrance, Ca. Donations of new, unwrapped toys will be collected at Gibson International office locations and by the firm’s agents throughout December. Representatives also collected contributions at the annual Montana Avenue Holiday Walk in Santa Monica on Dec. 4th. Gibson International staff will deliver donated items to Providence Volunteer Director Penelope Peck Thomason at TrinityCare Hospital. Donations may also be dropped off at TrinityCare Hospital on behalf of the Gibson International Charitable Foundation.
Gibson International Charitable Foundation Director Tina Cameron explains why TrinityKids Care was the chosen beneficiary:
“Again this year the Gibson International Charitable Foundation has chosen TrinityKids Care to be the recipient of our Toy Drive. TrinityKids Care is the only dedicated pediatric hospice program in Los Angeles and Orange counties for infants, children, and adolescents with life-limiting illnesses. We felt there was no better way to express our gratitude for all the blessings we have in life than to brighten the holidays for children and families facing terminal illness. We also wanted to, once again, shine a light on the amazing work that Hospice does with people of all ages who are facing the end of life….but especially the precious children who are with us so briefly.”
Gibson International encourages the Westside community to participate in the spirit of the season. Offices are located in Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Marina del Rey. Donations will be accepted during office hours. Brentwood and Pacific Palisades offices are open Monday- Friday from 9am to 5:30pm; Marina del Rey office hours are from 10am to 3pm. Current and past clients may reach out to their personal real estate agents to arrange donations. Participants are asked to consider items for older children and teenagers, including books, cosmetics, and electronics as well as gifts for younger recipients.
The company hosted a successful toy drive in 2014 for the TrinityKids Care program. Toys are provided as holiday gifts to child patients and distributed over the course of the year as not all patients are able to celebrate in December. Parents of TrinityKids Care patients appreciate the assistance; many cannot afford presents for their sick children because of medical expenses. Thankfully, TrinityKids Care does not turn away young patients and their families due to lack of financial means or health insurance.
