WCU-Ontario Gives More Than 400 Toys To Steven's Hope

Posted on 12/11/2017

West Coast University-Ontario students, faculty and staff came together this December and provided toys to children who are spending the holidays in the hospital.

"We received an overwhelming amount of toys. This has been the most successful toy drive Student Affairs has ever hosted," WCU-Ontario Student Services coordinator Roxanne Mendoza said.

With assistance from Steven’s Hope, the more than 400 toys collected at WCU-Ontario will be distributed to children hospitals throughout Riverside County.

Based in Upland, Steven's Hope provides emotional support and care for families with seriously ill or injured children. Once a year the non-profit organization coordinates a toy drive called “Winter Wonderland: A Christmas Gift Giving Project” with help from the community. In 2014, Steven's Hope distributed presents to more than 1,800 children at eight area hospitals and several treatment centers. 

"We are so grateful our campus has been able to contribute toys, year after year, to children in need," Mendoza said.
