CBD Gives Back: December 2017
CBD Gives Back to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
CBD College partnered directly with Children’s Hospital LA in this December’s Toy Drive- a first for the non-profit career college. Donations began on December 1st and were accepted through the last day of classes on the 23rd. Students and faculty joyfully delivered their new and unwrapped gifts for CHLA’s patients. Without fail, the bins were filled just in time for Winter Break, completing CBD Gives Back December.
The lobby saw enthusiastic displays of holiday spirit all month long. Students came to the front desk early before classes to drop off their coloring books, puzzles, and action figures. CBD is proud that their well-doers brought the merriness to campus for a good cause.
All of CBD College’s gifts were brought directly to CHLA’s Donation Center in Silver Lake. From there the toys are sorted to be brought to the Toy Room, making it possible to distribute 80,000 toys throughout the year and celebrate 6,000 birthdays each year– a significant factor in patients following their treatment plan.
The college plans to participate in the Toy Drive next year as part of the CBD Gives Back program.
