News Release

North Island Credit Union, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, invites residents to make a difference in a child’s life this holiday season by participating in its 2022 Holiday Toy Drive.

Through Dec. 17, North Island Credit Union encourages community members to drop off a new, unwrapped toy to any of its branch locations in San Diego. Donations needed include toys or gifts appropriate for elementary and middle school ages. All gifts will be distributed during the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego holiday celebrations in December. A complete list of North Island Credit Union locations is available here.

“Donating just one gift can make a huge difference in a child’s life this holiday season. We ask our community members to add another gift to their holiday shopping list and drop it off at any of our branches. Together, we can bring some holiday magic to the children in our community,” North Island Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell said.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego changes lives through quality youth programs and guidance in a safe, affordable and fun environment. The clubs serve kids ages 5-18 with programs focused on academic success, character development, and healthy lifestyles at 23 community-based sites countywide, covering a service area of over 2,000 square miles with several locations including Escondido and Valley Center.
