The Hilton & Hyland Helping Hands program is helping to make the season bright for more than two dozen children in the Los Angeles area. Hilton & Hyland's Beverly Hills office took part in a toy drive to benefit the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club. Gifts were collected for 40 children who are members of this influential organization.
Along with the toy drive, volunteers passed out these gifts and others to the families that attended the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club holiday celebration.
Six hundred families were in attendance, each receiving a food basket. Presents were also given to members as well as their siblings. Gift items included toys, art sets, and a variety of other items for toddlers to teens. All those in attendance at the holiday celebration took part in a meal, celebrated with music, and visited with Santa Claus.
Charles Black, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Development, said, "We are grateful to be able to play a role in the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club holiday celebration. Every child should feel safe and warm during the holidays. The Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club ensures that their young members feel that warmth throughout the year. Hilton & Hyland is proud to help them in their efforts."
The Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club is located in a 33,000 square-foot facility. Members have access to a swimming pool, gym, and athletic field. These members are children who need a place to build relationships, learn, and grow. They are encouraged to learn how to live healthy lives while being given hope for the future.
